Fun Sewing Tutorials

Ruffle Maxi Dress Tutorial from Sugar Bee Crafts simply throw a denim jacket or sweater over this and you have a great fall outfit!

Refashion a dress from Projects around the House- this is a great idea!

Update a Nursery Rocker from The DIY Mommy- This took this old rocker to a modern masterpiece. The fabric is stunning.

T-Shirt to Headband tutorial from The D.I.Y. Dreamer- It pains me to loose cute clothing. I love the idea of reusing these flowers for a headband!
