I’ve been spending this week working on my first Youtube video. Since I’ve loved watching refashions on Youtube, I thought it was about time I hunkered down and made one myself. It took quite a bit of editing, a ton of laughing, and nearly two hours of video to put […]

The Crafty Disaster’s First Youtube Video + Restyling Exchange 2017


Off the shoulder & cold shoulder tops are very trendy right now. I’ve been in a sewing slump this month but I finally finished a top for summer. I have had this fabric for a few years in my sewing stash that I knew would be perfect for this pattern. […]

A Fun Off the Shoulder Top + M7573



Earth Day is this week so I decided I wanted to share why I do what I do.  In college I took a sustainability class that I loved. We were assigned an eight week project where we had to lower our carbon footprint. While most of the class changed light bulbs […]

Earth Day: Refashion Roundup


This gingham dress, it really is the handmade dress of my dreams. It is by far my favorite project I have ever sewn. I know, I know. Every new post I say is my new favorite project, but GUYS I really mean it this time! This dress is my favorite […]

The Gingham Dress of My Dreams



Refashions are one of my favorite things to make. I found this ginormous Hawaiian muumuu at the GW Clearance Center for pennies on the dollar. To make a refashion happen, it helps to pick out something with a ton of fabric. It’s always easy to cut away fabric, but much […]

Spring could not come any faster here in Washington. Its been a cold, wet, never-ending winter. I may be jumping ahead but I pulled out these two patterns for spring. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the snow, for the first month or so, but I am ready for some warmer weather. […]

I love when I find a new thrift store in town. It’s easy to do since I haven’t really explored that much since we moved here. I have been loving peplum shirts and ruffles so when I came across this gingham shirt I knew exactly what I wanted to do with […]

It’s my birthday but I pretty much want to stay 22 forever. I know I can’t be the only one that feels that way, right? Since today’s my special day and while I didn’t really make/craft myself anything for my birthday, I did put together this post about some of my favorite […]

Happy Valentine’s Day – From Me to You!


This refashion project is 100% inspired by a Pinterest find. I saw a project on there that added lace to jean jacket. Just one quick search shows lots of jean jackets decked out in lace, ruffles, and tons of different trims. The jean jacket I used I thrifted from Plato’s closet and […]
