    I love it when your hair is down. It’s so pretty! The patches are cool but my little boys won’t have flowers. I need some patches that look like scabs or something. :) haha. I don’t understand boys. Do you have any of those? But then, my boys don’t wear blazers either. heehee. Have a good day!

    As for the email address thing, can’t we give that to you post-drawing? Something about putting my personal email address in the comments section of a blog where everything is public makes me a lil’ uncomfortable.

    Last year my grandma taught me how to sew and sent me home(she lives 2.5 hours away from me) with her 50+ year-old Singer 301 sewing machine. I didn’t (and still kind of don’t) know how to read sewing patterns and since I’m a poor high school(almost college) student, fabric and notions are waaaaay to expensive for me! In hope of finding another outlet for my new passion of sewing, I got on Pintrest where I found your awesome website! You have been such a huge inspiration to me! Even though I’m really busy with school, preparing for college, band, tennis etc… I have still found time to refashion (most likely) unwanted Goodwill items! These patches were a great find and it is very generous of you to give them away! Good luck everybody!

    I love this idea. I have a pair of jeans that just split on both knees. They are about 9 years old and are only just worn in. A set of patches would look awesome on these babies.
    I stumbled across your blog on pinterest and have been inspired to do a few refashions myself since following you. We live right smack bang in the middle of Australia and I need to order in most of my material from the cities. But it’s certainly worth the wait and worth it to have one of a kind pieces.

      Becky, do you mean what garment was the blazer refashioned from or how Refashionista refashioned the blazer itself? It seems Refashionista got the blazer like it was in the first picture and she explains the blazer was dyed then patches added.

        January 24, 2013 at 6:14 pm (2 years ago)

        Other than the dye (she has such a way with dye) and cute elbow patches, did Refashionista “tailor” the blazer for a bitter fit? She is very tiny and the first picture of the blazer looks too big for her small frame.
