Not every gift you receive is stellar and some can even leave you bemusedly scratching your head.
This year, instead of feeling embarrassed and timidly asking for the receipt to return it or packing it away to regift next year why not refashion those unwanted prezzies into something exactly your taste, style and size?
Take a peek at a few of my prezzie refashions and get transforming your own!

An easy fix with a quick chop and hem to shorten the length + my no-sew trick for taking in the sides of a dress: simply gather the excess fabric together in the centre of the back & pin with a funky brooch!
A too tight blouse needn’t be returned when you can add a bit of lace or funky fabric to loosen it up and make it completely unique!
Santa brought me a lovely vintage bag but unfortunately it was missing the shoulder strap, here’s how I quickly created a new one.
