Hello Readers. This is the last post of June. I enjoyed all my animal print refashions. This last project is more of a scrap buster project instead of a refashion or upcycle. I looked in my fabric closet for something with an animal print on it and I found a gem.

Hello Readers. I hope you are well. I am enjoying summer but trying to stay cool in the heat. This post is about another animal print of course. This shirt was my mom's. She loved giraffes. LOVED giraffes. I couldn't get rid of her giraffe things when she passed away so I am trying to incorporate them into my closet, house and keep little pieces of her with me.

Hello Readers. Today's post is about a dress that I did not refashion. I liked this dress just as it was but I usually can't wear dresses to work so couldn't wear it very often. Let's find a way to wear it more easily and more often.

Hello Readers. I know this month has been a lot of animal prints and most of them were giraffes. But... I have one more giraffe to share. This long sleeve shirt was soft and stretchy but I just felt like it might be too much. Like too much giraffe print? Let's see how we can calm down a print that feel like too much.

Hello Readers. I have noticed that biker shorts are masking a come-back. I remember them from the 90's. It's like leggings for summer. Pajamas you can wear in public. I didn't have any and I wasn't going to buy any but I wanted some.

Hello Readers. I hope you are enjoying the animal prints this month. I am liking them more than I thought I would. I liked this lightweight giraffe scarf but wanted to incorporate it into a piece of clothing.

Hello Readers. I hope you are having a calm peaceful summer. If you have seen the news lately it seems like nowhere and nothing is calm or peaceful. If you are hurting or feeling overwhelmed, you are nor alone. I am not blind to what is happening and I hope for better days. Sewing helps me find some quiet peaceful time in my week. I think I keep sewing for my own good.
Before and after.
