Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 32 from England. Engaged. I have been handcrafting cards since I can remember from making mothers day cards at nursery to selling them to friends and family now. I love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when you make a unique handcrafted card just for them. I have also been a keen scrapbooker/photographer since I was about 5 when my parents started to foster and I always kept a scrapbook for each child we cared for - which goes with them to their new families so they don’t forget any precious memories of their childhood.

My First attempt at making clothes

Since pinching my mams sewing machine about 3 weeks ago I had not used it but had wanted to attempt to make my nieces or the girls some little dresses.

I was sorting out some of my clothes which didn't fit me or  I didn't want anymore but could not part with them as I loved the fabric so I have a pile of clothes to cut up and reuse.

So this is what I made with the back of a top and the bottom of a vest top.

Its a dress for a 1 ish year old lol!


As this is my first attempt at any sort of clothes making I was pretty chuffed and Adam said it was good - praise indeed if he likes it. Wants to get me making clothes for him lol I said come on this is my first attempt and I don't think I'd ever get that good to make him clothes.


I am going to attempt a bigger one with the left over fabric. Its not costing me anything as I am recycling old clothes so practice makes perfect.

Any hints or tips anyone?? I need help lol

Thanks so much to taking the time to view and comment its much appreciated

It's a very good idea to re-use your clothes ! It's beautiful !

Great idea for recycling--you know I approve. :)

The dress turned out really cute. I'm eager to see what your next project will be.

So cute! I have no advice, I will only attempt curtains which only require sewing a straight line! ;)

Good work Sam - you should stick with it. I'm not safe to be let alone with a sewing machine, I'm completely rubbish at it :)

Seriously awesome idea Sam! I am the worlds worst sewer though...so not sure how successful I would be! On the other hand...you did a super job!
