what a wonderful weekend!

Last weekend I had the honour of heading up to the wonderful town of Yackandandah to perform at their Folk Festival. It's a great town and a great festival!! Such a beautiful part of the world. I had such a lovely time performing, the audiences were so enthusiastic and it did my soul a whole lot of good! I was super busy playing shows, doing interviews and running workshops, but loved every minute of it. The kids stayed back in Melbourne with grandparents, and I headed up to Yack with my hubby, and my brother Pete (who plays guitar for me) his wife Taz and their seriously cute little son, Percy. It was great hanging out with them. Probably the highlight from the weekend though was meeting up with one of my fav bloggers Claire (Sweet Birdy Love) who lives in Yackandandah. We have enjoyed each others blogs for a couple of years, and it was the best to finally meet!!
Have you ever met up with a fellow blogger? was it great?

Speak soon!! love Mezz xox


upcycling t-shirts into undies!

I have made myself some more undies! I love doing this. I like to wear mostly handmade or second hand clothes, but due to hygiene reasons I used to see underwear as the one item of clothing I needed to make exceptions for. The truth is, I still do buy nice new underwear every now and then (there are more and more ethical underwear companies emerging which is great to see), but I like mixing it up with what I can make myself too. I have posted about making undies before, and you can see how I go about it by clicking here.
I'm extra excited about these two recent pair though, because I made them using old tshirts that I was about to chuck. Old stretchy t shirts are great for underwear making, because they are comfy and stretchy. The decorative elastic used on the edges was op shopped.
I love my new undies! Handmade, comfy, ethical, upcycled and fun! Hip hip hooray!

Have you ever made underwear??
