I have vowed via my 17 for 2017 Challenge not to buy any new clothes in 2017.
Part of this challenge is to recycle or upcycle existing clothes. These trousers were bought over 12 years ago and I haven’t worn them for at least 10 years. The colour is a bit startling all in one block, slightly darker and more purple in reality. We are in the middle of a heatwave here in the UK, I need some shorts, so …..
The (long) shorts come just below my knobbly knees and I shall leave them to fray with wear. The colour is more bearable when there is less of it.
With the bonus of two pieces to play with …
…. on the left an idea for a small shoulder bag, just right for a child to take to the beach and on the right, fabric for textile books or another piece of textile art – fun!
Have you revamped any clothes recently?
