.....Wear something crafty.....

......This is the name of my new little line in ''Altered upcycled clothing''........

''Wear something crafty''

......I have been collecting and storing up old and new unwanted clothes and fabrics for a while indulge in my other joy of recycling old clothes,, i think it all started with the tweed jacket back in October that got me all fired up into doing it..........i have been quietly considering too about starting another blog all about redesigning old clothes,  and hopefully selling some of my creations from it watch this space my friends, i think new things are afoot in the 'crafte nook'..........

.....This is an old tank top that i have just finished upcycling,, i have given it the Pixie treatment, and i am quite quite pleased with it........ has its very own hand stitched 'wear something crafty' label..... has hand stitched writing...... has scrappy fabric and buttons..... has an old vintage button that i found in my mums old button tin, that now has a hand stitched teapot on it......

....Its also wool and angora, so lovely and soft to wear........i think i shall put this one up for sale.....what do you think? x

......Back soon with new things....

  5. You are so clever!
    I love a bit of upcycling but sometimes lack ideas, so an up-cycling bloggy site would be fabulous.

  6. What a brilliant idea, love the label. I love to re-use bits and pieces of old garments and fastenings and incorporate them in my work too. Watching with interest what's next. jaynex

  7. I think it's a great idea. I always embellish my "new" clothes with buttons or ribbons or I sew little pieces of fabric on to make them "my own" Lucey x
