Old Denim Jeans Transformed into a New Denim Skirt

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

I am pleased to share with you another transformational project from an avid sewer Irene!

Irene sews at home and her sewing helper is her gorgeous cat Tigger!

As you can see below Irene has transformed a pair of old denim jeans into a new denim skirt. (Please note: this jeans photo wasn’t the actual pair cut up as we didn’t get a picture of the actual pair used. So we have included this denim jeans photo to demonstrate what was done from an original pair of denim jeans).

New Denim Skirt Front – The front of the skirt is the pocket and fly section of the jeans and the back pocket sections of the jeans, with two small panels from the legs to make the lower halves required for the width.

Back of Skirt - The back of the skirt are made from the legs of the jeans.

Tigger gives Irene a cat kiss after the job is done! How cute!

Well done Irene! Thank so much for sending your transformed Jeans pictures to us here at Maree Pigdon Sewing Centre to share with our readers!

Suzie bought this delicious strawberry and chocolate cake for dessert for end of term, check one out below!

Sewing Aprons in class & a special Baby Sewing helper!

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

In today’s post I am delighted to share more gorgeous sewing projects from some of the students in my sewing school.

Jan made a fabulous apron as you can see below. A black print combination of plain, print and stripe. Jan made this 1/2 apron style from one of my own designer apron patterns.

Tanya as shown below made a gorgeous vintage apron from vintage fabric to make a half apron to wear while cooking in her kitchen too! Great job Tanya well done!

We had a very special guest and sewing helper come to class! One of my students Sue, interrupted her term of sewing classes to give birth to her second child, a sweet little girl called Carrie. As you can see below Sue was quick to return to sewing classes with her new little bundle of joy and sewing helper. I guess you can never start too early in learning how to sew!

Sue as below shows the finished product of her beautiful Owl quilt for her new baby. Sue also enjoys baking and brought to class a tin of freshly baked fruit scones to share with her class which were just delicious. Thanks Sue, congratulations and well done on your baby quilt!

Well done girls! I can’t wait to see your next sewing projects and sewing designs in term 3!
