Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher...
I love materials,textiles and remnants and I love thinking outside the nine dots. Now we all know that the summer has been non existent. The sun has not been shining here in Devon. In fact I have been fairly much wearing jeans and jumpers. Well of course the upside of that is that the shops are dying to get rid of their sunshiney stock. Added to this the demise of the Peacocks chain has been in the news. So when out wandering,as you do, this dress caught my eye and the price certainly hit the high notes --- £5. Now the clever move when faced with this situation is to buy the biggest size available. You are not going to wear it and every centimetre of material is a bonus. So a size 22 was just perfect!
And look what I Upcycled with this little bargain!
First some pretty shoes bags. In a large size for popping special shoes in when travelling.
Such pretty material with little sequins for added sparkle.
I have popped some on some nice wooden coathangers and the wardrobe is smelling lovely.
I really enjoyed this little bit of upcycling. And "The Sporty One" saw an even better challenge yesterday. I will bog about upcycling Take 2 soon.
