DOCTORS STITCHED ME UP ❣

This time, doctors stitched me up for the sustainable health purposes!

The younger sista is telling the story:

I flied to Istanbul in the first week of January for my dental procedures only but the universe had different plans for me. To shorten a long story: I had an unexpected pancreatitis attack and two operations back to back, first an ERCP in the pancreas and then the gall bladder removal surgery.

As if it wasn't enough, after I was discharged from the hospital, finally my dental procedure has started and I had another operation in my mouth, ended with ten stitches.

Luckily I was with my older sista all the way in my journey back to health and I cherished her companionship and help. Against all odds, sometimes we laughed so hard that I was about to be unstitched 🀣

Oh, I was even able to put some new Sista & Sista Made goodies into my luggage before my flight back to the UK. They are sustainable eco-printed textile items and will be listed soon in our online shop. Link in the bio.

Wishing you all the best and healthy days. πŸ™

SCRUNCHTASTIC ME-MADE SCRUNCHIES ❀

Pheww...it was a busy week. The first sewing session of .ClothesLab , Scrunchie Making was on last Sunday. The participant was keen on earthy colours and chose her scraps from the piles of . The class last almost two and a half hours, in the end, she had 3 me-made scrunchies using different technics and enthusiasm about developing more sewing skills. Such a nice new year's resolution. Horray!

SO SORRY❗
..for the incredibly long gaps between our posts !!! β›”

This is caused by losing my appetite on social media or being so busy with sustainable sewing projects or having some health issues resulted in an operation or having the excitement of visiting my homeland after 3 long years or reuniting my sista and having lots of laugh... laugh... laugh together πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

All of the above.

ON THE WAY TO NEW YORK ❀

This year, at one of the end of summer craft markets, we got an order at a size we don’t have for one of our ecoprinted t-shirts. So, older sista bought a plain tshirt in the requested size in Turkey and ecoprinted it. Then she sent it to the UK; and the younger sista sewn a label to it, took its photos and contacted the client. In the meantime, our potential buyer has concluded her UK visit and already returned home, to New York. Did it stop us? No way! The purchase is confirmed and this bespoke Sista & Sista Made tshirt is now on the way to New York 😊

So, it will arrive at its new home after almost 11.000 km travel!

Distance means nothing for sistas and bros that take the less travelled road πŸ˜‰

100% INSPIRATIONAL, NEW BLOG ENTRY ❀

I come across this question most of the time:

Where do you get your sustainable materials from?

Well, in years I had accumulated a quite amount of fabric stash which I am proud of. Since I set the "what worth to keep for recycling" mind, I keep on collecting on and on... For example, I never throw an old bag away, before I take out zips, magnetic clips, fastening parts etc.

What about the overseas!

Older sista reports; β€œYour Trash, My Treasure.”

That part of our story continues in our latest blog entry in our website: "The Source of Magic". The directly dive in link:

I was busy with some of the mendings and alterations yesterday. Today I delivered the pieces to my customer and left her in a satisfied mood. How lovely πŸ₯°

I am sure in wardrobes many of you have a small pile of garments that need mendings or alterations. If you may get enough inspiration and basic skills you can make at least some of them on your own.

That may be the event your clothes have been waiting for! ⏬⏬⏬

Please swipe down the pictures to read the details.

I will be at The Open Market, Brighton for helping to the organization 23rd-24rd of July. I would like to meet and have chat with you on obvious topics: Re-use, Re-skill, Re-fashion. πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

UPCYCLING OF UPCYCLED ❀

Once upon a time, there was a pink mandala denim bag. Not anymore! Because we even recycle and upcycle our products! πŸ’₯

We love the endless possibilities of sustainable sewing! πŸ’• Do you, too?

The said mandala is now at the back of a RefashionSistas burgundy jacket. Please view the tagged product.πŸ‘†

And the bag is now a messenger bag with an embellished front flap and new indigo lining. We rolled the hems of the denim trousers to get that statement look. 😍 Isn't it beautiful?

As soon as we landed it on our market rack on Saturday, it found itself a new home --or a shoulder! πŸ˜„ We are more than happy πŸŽ‰

So please be hurry to avoid any dissapointment and make purchases if any Sista&Sista Made item is on your wish-list. Those unique pieces may get sold or may get a transform. Who knows!? πŸ˜„

GETTING PREPARE ❀

Today is a market day for us, so Sista&Sista Made goodies are ready for a trip to Brighthelm Gardens.

I put some price tags onto new items by cutting these old school notebook tags into halves, specially made for writing your full name, class and subject. Remember? Have you ever done that? Once upon a time? πŸ₯°

These sticker tags are so nostalgic for us because they had purchased by our father in 1978!!! Let me make the calculation, yes these tags are already 43 years old. OMG! They are vintage and still work perfectly... and there are plenty more. We can make many more price tags with them. So keep on being productive, yeah! πŸ˜„

⏳Market Reminder: Today, 10th of July Saturday, Brighton Brighthelm Gardens, between 11-5. πŸ‘ See you there πŸ‘€

THINKING IN THE RAIN ❀

Another rainy week started yesterday, here in the southeast coast of UK. 🌧

In one side of my mind, I am planning the third wash of Chinese indigo fabric pieces (the first pic; they are still bleeding too much colour) which are given me by my dear sista. She had bought these 3 different traditional pattern fabric when she was living in Shanghai. I am going to use them for lining the new upcycled denim bags I am recently working on. 🧡

And in other side of my mind, I am wondering if the weather will let me take photos of the newly added RefashionSistas jackets this week or not! I usually like shooting photos in my garden but I guess, it will keep on raining. πŸ§₯

So as a reminder of sunny days, I wanted to share these beautiful flowers from my garden taken a few weeks ago... Enjoy! πŸ₯°

And I am also hoping and praying for a dry Saturday at the market this weekend, keeping my fingers crossed.🀞

Market Reminder: 10th of July Saturday, Brighton Brighthelm Gardens, between 11-5. πŸ‘ See you πŸ₯°

THIS SATURDAY ❀

We are taking part in Brighton's Street Food and Makers Market at Brighthelm Gardens, in lovely environment, just near by The Lanes.

This will be the our first outdoor event this year, first time for settling our brand new gazebo up, wish us luck!

As we promised we add NEW items to our collection for every meet-up. These new things come out from discarded, leftover, surpluse textile materials which are resourced, repurposed, reused, converted... sustainably handmade with love.

Love of planet, love of being creative, love of being productive. If you will be around, drop in and have a chat with us for sharing that love.

THE SMALL CONVERTS MAKE YOU HAPPY ❀

Come closer to read this story with a happy end.

My daughters' (of course! They both worn this in a row) down coat is now too small, too worn out to donate, I will decide later what to do with the rest of it but first, I decided to deal with its elastic waist band.

I unpicked it to apart into pieces; as you see 1 is bigger than 3 sometimes! Now I have a wide and strong elastic band, one gold clips, and a waterproof fabric tube.

I halved the fabric tube, embelished it with golden beads, inserted a quarter inch wide elastic.... taa daaaa... here is my new scrunchie. πŸ₯°

I know some people like to wear the scrunchies on their wrists, I prefer them around my hair bun. Do you like it?

❓Give me an idea, what can I do with the other half? ❓
