Today's Guest: Meredith from Haute to Sew

HI all! I'm so excited to introduce you to my blog Haute To Sew today! Guess I should tell you who I am first, right? My name is Meredith. I am a school photographer by day and a DIY, crafting, sewing nerd by night. I'm married to Mr. Perfect and have a 10 year old step-kiddo. I blog about everything from sewing to remodeling our house.
Not sure why his hand looks bigger than my head hehe
Moving on...today I want to show you some of my favorite projects.

First up, our bathroom remodel! We just finished this project not long ago. I'm so in love it! We had to work with this ugly yellow-ish tile all over the room, but it was a success! Check out how we took this bathroom from this:

Pretty sweet huh?! Ok next up, I upcycled these cheap plastic plates to match the curtains in my kitchen. I really think they turned out great. I smile every time I see them :)

And I suppose I should throw in something sewing related, since ya know, my blog is named Haute To SEW. I made this tablet cover for my dad for Christmas this year. He loved it and I was super proud of it. It's really hard to give handmade, sewn gifts for guys sometimes.

I also give tutorials on how to upcycle the clothes you don't wear anymore into pieces you will wear. Can you believe this used to be a baggy long sleeved shirt and a dress?? Check it out to see how it was done!
I want to give a huge THANKS to Karen for having me share today!! I hope you will stop by Haute To Sew and see what else I've been up to! I have a lot of fantastic projects coming up soon so make sure you stay awhile {wink wink}. I'm also going to be starting a "sewing tips" series, so be on the lookout for that! Have a wonderful day!

Wow!  This woman is seriously talented!  I love the shirt refashion!  Thanks so much for stopping by Meredith:)


  1. What great ideas! I enjoyed looking around Meredith.


  2. The tablet cover looks like it turned out great!
    I love the post on upcycling the clothing. I really enjoy reading those kinds of posts even though I have no interest in learning to sew, myself. It's a pretty amazing talent.


Thank you so much for your comments...I love them!!
