Finally, a re-fashion!

Since I pledged over at Wardrobe Refashion I haven't actually managed to get to do anything! But when I was hanging out some gorgeous vintage sheets, getting ready for the vintage sheet swap, I had some plans a-brewing.I guess not technically a refashion, as in, they were not originally clothes, but they weren't bought fabric either, so I'm counting it as a refashion.


First up these lounge pants that I cut out last week, but didn't manage to put together until 2 days ago. They are super soft and comfy, and perfect for the mild winter that unfortunately Queensland brings.

Then with the other sheet I decided to refashion my bed of sorts. I'm not much into the whole decorating thing but thought this sheet matched my chenille bedspread perfectly, so I got to it. Yes, pillowcases from vintage sheets! Who would have thought!!

Before
After
What do you think?

That ugly black bedside thing has been asking for a revamp for quite some time, and in sitting here looking at the photo I just had a major brain wave on what to do with it. Stay tuned....

Mild wonter? Mild?! It was a freezing 10 degrees last night!!!
I love the pants, they look fabulous!! And the pillowcases lok fab too. Can't wait to see what you're going to do with the bedside table. I just threw a bit of nice fabric over mine. Keeps the dust off of the polished wood too.
