The Style Pile Episode #4

Helloooo! So this top was a fairly new addition to the unfinished sewing pile. I got this secondhand at a markets the other day knowing full well that I am NOT a size AU8. Not by a long shot. But I really liked the style and colour sooooo I bought it anyway. Once I brought it home I thought that I may as well try it on and well.... You'll see what happened with that brilliant idea. Anyway, I put my sewing cap on and tried to upsize it! I also tried to include heaps of good/useful tips on sewing stretch fabrics in this video, which I hope are useful! Enjoy!

Asking For Your Help

I'm doing something very scary/exciting today and launching a Patreon campaign! I've never talked so openly about having an illness on my YouTube channel before, which is why it was so scary, but I wanted to be super honest with everybody!!

Anyway, Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that helps content-creators like myself fund their creative endeavours through the help of their fans and supporters. I explain it in much better detail in the video below, and on my Patreon page, so check them out.
Plus I already have 2 Patreon-exclusive vlogs up, so, there's some immediate bang for your buck ;)

Thank you for ALL of the types of support you guys have given me over the last few years!! I really really really really have appreciated all of it.

Much love,

DIY Furry Eyeball Clutch!

HELLO! In today's Make Thrift Buy video I'm using my absolute favourite material in the world (HA, SARCASM) - furry fabric. Seriously though, I'm still finding that blue fluff from my shorts. EVEN AFTER MOVING HOUSE. HOW DOES THAT EVEN HAPPEN.

But this time, it wasn't such a nightmare, thank goodness!! This technique can also be used to make any sort of zippered pouch - a pencilcase, phone case, make up bag.... etc. And you don't have to use furry fabric either. Though you should probably always attach eyes because - they're googly eyes. They're the cutest.
