Upcycle Challenge Complete

October 29, 2017


This is the final result of a  challenge working with a limited amount of fabric using colours and embellishments that may not be usual for me. It is all part of #SHCGetYoSewOn phenomenon. 


The Sustainable Handmade Collective have commenced a monthly challenge where we choose a bundle of fabric and embellishments that has been selected and we have approximately 2 weeks to create what ever we want. The finale sees the popular public vote just like any great reality TV show.


I chose this very pretty blue pack that had synthetic black lace - pretty - but the iron is not so friendly with this, yellow flowers, a pretty blue and brown floral sheet (I am guessing ) and a blue embroided tablecloth that I actually use regularly at home from my Grandma.


The possibilities are always endless as to what to make but I really wanted to feature the tablecloth as it reminds me of Grandma. I use my tablecloth on a card table when we have gatherings. The Playgroup dress allowed me to feature the blue tablecloth but I was limited to a size 2. 


I always like a bit of quirky and left of centre so the asymmetrical lace was a given,

The rear ties are the trim that I unpicked from  the edge of the tablecloth and the bodice is fully lined with the solid blue.



















The elastic on the headband is  the only extra I added in so I could complete the outfit. A beautiful little pattern from the One Thimble. Miss L wasn't too happy with her picture as she couldn't see her beautiful face but she did do an excellent job showing you the headband.


I hope to do this all again next month and look forward to telling you about my  creative choices. I do just need to be super quick on the 1st November to get a new pack.


So what do you think of my creation? If you do think it worthy  then I would greatly appreciate a vote in the blue challenge for number 2. Take a look around at all the other creations on Instagram using #SHCGetYoSewOn.


Take care of yourself, hug those you love tight and call those people you haven't spoken to for too long...please.
