Group Project: April

Headbands

So the group hasn’t been overly active lately and i wanted to pick a project that was small and quick, you should have the materials for a headband lying around the house (scraps or a t-shirt will do for most of these!) already so it’s just a super simple project that most of you should have time for.

I’m not in the habit of wearing fabric headbands out of the house but they’re great for days where you don’t want to do anything with your hair, so you can just shove them on your head and look like you’ve put in that little bit of effort. They also come in handy for keeping your hair out of your face while putting on makeup, washing your face or working out. If you don’t wear them you can always make one for a niece or friend!

I know a couple of you crochet so if you want to crochet a headband instead it’ll still count towards this months project. Again, you don’t have to use and of the tutorials listed here. If you want to make something from a different tutorial or from scratch go ahead!

Kinda wish I got it now
Can get it here if anyone is interested x

That is neat. It would look really nice framed over my sewing table….:P

 This is a variation of the basic Halter I did HERE..  
For those of you who did not like the back on the first DIY halter;  this one makes the back tighter.
I love taking one thing and creating different looks, is one of my favorite things to do.
Enjoy!

How to make a t-shirt smaller - Melly Sews

Hello!

I’ve neglected the blog in the past week! I haven’t been feeling that great lately so I wasn’t around for group chat this week either. So apologies for that.

I just wanted to see how you guys are doing and how you’re getting on with this months project (if anyone else has even started?), I’m starting mine tomorrow amongst another project or two.

Also, if you’ve posted anything sewing related and I haven’t reblogged it that means I haven’t seen it. So if you could tag me with the @ function to make it a little easier for me to reblog your projects that would be great.

Hope you guys have a good week!

How Joyful | The Upcycled ruffles dress tutorial

You will need either one long sleeveless T-shirt or 2 short ones. Since Ken’s were pretty long I only used one but it depends on how many rows of ruffles you want and how condensed the ruffle will be…

Tagging

So a lot of you tag your posts with ‘sewing circle’ because i track it and that’s been the system, but lately it’s been telling me there’s new tags but nothing new is showing up. Which is a pain because i don’t know if there are posts from you guys in there or whether it’s just crap from other people that use the tag.

Seeing as we can now directly tag people in our posts with the @ function, it’ll be a million times easier for me to see your sewing related posts if you do that. So you can type @ sewing-circle (without the space) on any posts you want me to see or reblog, that way it comes up in my notifications.

A lot of you already do that, so gold stars for you guys. You can still use the tags as i still check it every time i log on, but this way i get a notification and i don’t have to scroll 60 miles through my dash in hopes of catching anything. So if you’ve posted something sewing related and i haven’t liked or reblogged it, that means i haven’t seen it.
