Guest Judge of the Week{Haute to Sew}-Podcast

This week is all about Refashions and by browsing the blog of this week’s guest judge, you can see that she knows a thing or two about refashioning.

Meet Meredith, the sweet blogger behind Haute to Sew.

I will let her tell you who she is in her own words:

Hi! I’m Meredith. I am a {nearly} 30 year old wife to Mr. Perfect and a step-mom. I am a photographer by day and a sewer/crafter/home improver by night. My day job is with Lifetouch. Yes, that’s right, I take all the kiddos school pictures, and sports, and seniors, and whatever else my boss tells me to do! I like it, but I don’t…let’s not dwell on that. Haute To Sew is where I get to show off my projects to people that care. What I mean by that is, I need a connection with other creative minds and people who are interested in the same things I am. Mr Perfect is supportive in his own way, but let’s face it, he’s not a crafting, sewing woman!
At Haute To Sew you will find tutorials, home decorating ideas, sewing tips, crafts, diy jewelry….basically a little of everything. I have a hard time sticking with one thing 🙂  Most of my projects are done with very little money. Truth be told, we don’t have a money tree in our backyard. But I enjoy being thrifty…this is probably a trait I’ve learned from my dad. There’s a certain sense of satisfaction when you’ve made something fantastic that was going to be trash or was from materials purchased for next to nothing.

As she mentioned she loves to sew and refashion. Here are some of my favorite projects she has done and blogged about. I know you will be inspired!

Razor back tank made from a big shirt

Braided Bracelet made from a t-shirt

Did you know that you can even refashion/upcycle a door and  make it into a chalkboard door? Fabulous!

I know Meredith is perfect to be this week’s guest judge. I even got the pleasure of speaking to her for this week’s podcast, CSI Confidential. We talked about her refashions and she gave some tips. She even gave one that we can all implement into our lives. If you buy tons of fabric and you don’t want your hubby to think you have a problem, she has an answer for you.

I am so happy to have Meredith join us this week. Go by her blog and say hi! Give her a BIG CSI welcome and link up because she just may pick you as a WINNER!!!
