making... making....

My first refashion for the spawn is a portable change mat.
In delicious leopard print!

I made it from an old shower curtain I received from my mother in law's house. She moved in and it wasn't her style, so I snapped it up! Add in some fluffy polyester polar fleece for the inside so it's nice and soft on baby's butt.
The inside view, when all unfolded:

It was quite an easy make, although i deleted the ugly webbing strap handle (I'm going to make a nappy bag to put this in, so I don't think it really needs a handle), and I also deleted the ugly plastic buckle, and used a vintage black shank button instead, with a loop of elastic to secure it closed.
Next up, the matching nappy bag, and then a black skull bag+mat for the hubby.

Refashion Pledge

The Pledge

I Cherry Rockette pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 6 months. I pledge that i shall refashion, renovate, recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium for the term of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovated, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings! Signed... Cherry Rockette

I did this last year, and was quite successful in the 'not buying new things' area, but less successful in the 'must post once a week' dept. So my aim this time is to actually post once a week (or more), as an encouragement to bloody well make stuff. Since i have a surprise on the way, i need to start making lots of things anyway, so even more reason to get posting and share what I make and get some feedback as to whether there's much of a market out there for it. (I think there is, but market research is always a good validator, don't you think?)

i have no picture to post today, so this will have to do
