National Sewing Month

September is National Sewing Month and this year's theme is Reuse, Remake, Restyle. So no more excuses ... it's time to get out the machine and get to work. What I love about restyling is that the hard work is already done for you. You don't have to try to get a sleeve to fit perfectly, or make buttonholes, or install a zipper. You can concentrate on the fun and fashionable part of the project instead.

In Altered You! you'll find projects to restyle a strappy summer tank top into a school-appropriate T, a pair of shorts into a cute flouncy skirt, a bulky sweatshirt into a bolero-style jacket, jeans into trimmed-out capris, even bed sheets into a beach wrap.

Send pictures of your creations to karinbuckingham (at) yahoo (dot) com. I would love to see them, and if you'd like, I'll post them to the blog.
