What type of Seamstress are you?

30days has a list of links for beginners, intermediate, and advanced seamstress which will be helpful learning new skills or updating your sewing skills for whatever category you fall under.

I was given a sewing machine about a couple of years ago until last year 2009 I've decided to do a refashion, which I did. I will talk about the refashion in another post, but after the refashion I just stopped using the sewing machine.

Why? It's probably because of the lack of skills, the cost of materials, or being creative. Although, I will be using most of the materials from my closet. I'm guessing it's just putting what I have now together.

I do know my way around the sewing machine. Thanks, to my home economics teacher way back in high school I've picked up a few skills. I really need to brush up on them, so check out the link above.

Recycle Bras

What do you with the bras' that no longer fits?
Do you throw it in the trash?
Would you refashion a bra?

At one time or another YES, I would normally throw it away. Now, I'm letting it pile up. I would love to refashion a bra, but I need ideas. I don't know where to begin or how to refashion a bra. So, if anyone out there may have any suggestions, please drop me a comment or links.

If I don't come up with some creativity I would probably send my unwanted bras' to The Bra Recyclers.
