♥To Sew With Love♥

How are you doing today, lovely blogging friends? I am Lelanie and I am here, in behalf of the other two ladies, Laarnie and Lhorie, behind To Sew With Love, the blog and TSWL, The Shop! I had been "stalking" April's blog for quite a while. At first, I was just "drooling" over her fab projects and later on, I started linking up my projects in her linky party and finally, I have become a public follower. I was really honored when she decided to accept to swap blogs with us! *Thanks, April! You're great!*
So, the TSWL started as a Facebook group, which I created with my younger sister Laarnie, and just recently we have decided to take the path of blogging. We were a bit hesitant at first but we warmed up right away, at the same time, overwhelmed by the number of so many warm, lovely and crafty bloggers out there.
So we have decided to start this blog named after our group To Sew With Love. My sister Laarnie and my highschool friend Lhorie contributes to the blog.  I am a SAHM of two kids (a 5-year old Princess and a 2-year old Li’l Guy) who are my heartbeats while my sister is also a SAHM to her 1 year old and a half Little Princess. Lhorie, on the other hand, is single (and available ^^) and has a cute dog named Kiray. I am in Spain, my sister is in Japan while Lhorie is in China but the distance isn’t a hindrance for us. That’s what makes the blogosphere seem so big yet so small ^^)
In our blog, you would mostly be seeing a lot of repurposing, refashioning and upcycling projects in our blog - which I think is one of the favorite pastimes of crafty mothers like me and my sister. We just hate throwing things away. We repurpose those old pairs of pants:

And those ill-fitting clothes of ours:
Or the ill-fitting clothes of our husbands.
We also love creating things from scratch, like pretty pillows-sleeping buddies for my kids:
Have you seen a southern belle prettier than her?
We love jazzing up a bit some things:
We also create with our kids.
We also have some tutorials.
We also host a Thursday giveaway:


a Crafty Saturday Link-up Party:


and starting this Sunday, our We Love handmade Feature Post.


I own an Etsy shop called ArcoĆ­ris, which in Spanish means “rainbow”. I love working with colourful fabrics and making something one of a kind out of it. I especially love creating gift sets like this:


or this:


I have a BigCartel shop under the same name where I sell handmade hair accesories and rings among other things:



We also have opened very recently TSWL The Shop where we sell some amazing findings:


handmade accesories and personalized items:


Muchas gracias, April, for this blog swap. We are really honoured to be here. I hope the lovely readers of this fab blog could pop over our blog and warm it up a little with their sweet Hi’s. 
Hugs,
Photobucket
