Those fine folks over at Threadbanger have decided to make me famous.

Who knew?

FYI -- Threadbanger is one kicking group of twenty-somethings who live in the Brooklyn, NY creative community. They produce a blog and weekly show about sewing, creating, decorating, and generally great ideas. They thrive on upcycling (recycling something old to make it into something new) -- they teach, encourage, and exemplify what it means to be an artist in the 21st century.

So I sent them the capelet video I made (see the older posts) and they decided to feature it for Mother's Day!

I am so flattered! Check out Threadbanger for my 3-4 minutes of fame, as well as a whole slew of great crafts and sewing projects.

And check back here for a new video on making your regular jeans into a great pair of wide-leg trouser jeans -- that fit you wonderfully!



  1. Hi!!

    I was just redirected here from the Threadbanger video.

    great tutorial!! thanks a lot.
    I will be showing it to my sister (she is the sew-genius of the family :P... ha! I know that I think of it: we are also 5 sisters, but we stopped being teenagers a while ago! hehe) so she can make one for myself another one for her daughter.

    thanks again!
    keep up the good attitude
