A little upcycle action


So, the DIM upcycled skirt is done!!! I'm so happy, proud, excited and pumped!!! Someone, tranquilize me!!! STAT. This whole "learning to sew" stage of my life has been pretty cool I must confess. There have been a couple of ups and downs, but the good things in life usually involve some sort of roller coaster, right?

As I'm writing this, I'm laying on my bed wondering what else God has in store for me. I question Him daily..isn't that sad? I actually doubt He'll make good on His promises..I mean, He is God after all..He can't contradict Himself..but I realize I have a lot of room to grow..but I must be willing to.

Anyways, here's the finished product!! :) I'll try to do a little photoshoot with the skirt!! But I was so excited to post this, that I couldn't wait till tomorrow!!! Oh! I got the idea to make this skirt from this lovely tutorial. I'm hoping to actually make a skirt like the one she makes, but I got inspired to do my own little version of it! I added an elastic at the waist too! :) You'll get the full gist of it when I upload a few pics of me wearing it!

Upcycled Black Knit Skirt
Ay!!! I almost forgot!! :) I don't know about you, but I love Barbies. When I was younger I was all about them!! I used to love changing their clothes and making a mess of their hair, and marrying them to the Kens! Ah! to be a kid! Anywho, I found this wonderful, splendid tutorial through, you guessed it, Pinterest. I made some Barbie skirt y'all! And I am full on loving them! You have got to check out her blog! It's soooo awesome!!!

Mucho love,



  1. Te tengo que felicitar Caro, realmente se nota toda la pasión y empeño que le has puesto a todas tus creaciones, en especial a esta falda. It really looks good! About what you said about questioning God, I think that nor you or anybody knows what are his plans for us in our lives, we just need try to be patience and wait on him. And I know that being patience is hard becauseis a virtue that we sometimes lack of but we need to try our best even thou. The Lord loves us and he allways knows whats best for us, we just need to trust him :) Thanks for sharing the tutorias!

  2. Aaaahhh!!! Thank you Ivonchi! Your words mean the world to me! You're right about everything! <3 The Lord does love us! Amen!! Thanks for refreshing this soul! Love you!
