Pokemon strike no.1

Yay! For Pokemon.
Seems like Pokemon wave invades everywhere at the moment. Pokemon go is not allowed in our house since my kids are too young to play but the T.V program show it 7 days a week. So, they are quite obsessed by Pikachu and his Pokemon friends.
My plan is to sew Pokemon inspired outfit for both of my girl. I started with the little one. She is an active girl and I think romper would suit her. Who doesn't like to see the little todd running around in cute romper? 

I can't find the right yellow fabric for romper, so I up-cycled itfrom xxl polo t-shirt. 

The romper is made with Magil&Lil romper pattern from shwin designs. This pattern is very cute and versatile. You can get many looks just from one pattern, including dress/short romper/with faux t-shirt style.

I have no idea why the girl keep smiling like this all the time that I took her photo. To imitate Pikachu expression, I guess? Lol.
Or she was very happy with her new romper? I'd love to believe that cox mommy sooooo happy to see her smile in mom made outfit!

What do you think about this Pikachu romper? I would love to hear from you. Thank you for stop by.

The 3rd life of my maternity t-shirt

Hi all!

I didn't make or re-make things much lately but the refashion mojo has just striked back when I started to work out again, about 2 years after I gave birth to my second girl. 
I have many t-shirts from my maternity time lay around, comfy but not so flatter on me at the moment (still have 3 kg left and a permanent muffin top tummy).
This t-shirt was refashioned once by stencil on its front. I decided to give it the 3rd life with the easiest way, cut out t-shirt.
This is a no sew and very easy refashion which you can find its how-to floats around Pinterest. I recommend using a quiet big t-shirt for this project to get the loose tank top as the result. Mine is size L and end up fit for me.

I found the work out tank tops are pricey and plan to refashion more of my t-shirt. I hope it will turn out well and I will share with you again.

Happy refashion!
