“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…” Now that I have that stuck in your head, let’s talk about our Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION time. The last Tuesday of each month I take you on a journey with the intent to inspire. Today, I’m getting the holiday spirit rolling with a DIY Christmas swag and planters (1) created on a budget (2) super easy (3) and perfect for the entire winter season. (not just Christmas)
In order to do that, I’m making use of this super cozy, yet worn out flannel shirt. Don’t you just love a worn flannel? mmm…so soft.
It’s that time again! I get so excited when I start to brainstorm about my Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION project for each month. If you didn’t know, that last Tuesday of each month is where I share a way to recreate your existing or found items into fashion, home decor and more. Today, I’m finally getting around to my vision for these brand new socks I found at the thrift store. I’m gaming to create some whimsical upcycled sock dolls and animals. woot!
Now, I have to ask…would you have grabbed these? I debated on trying them on to show you just how HUGE these socks are. They are definitely
I’m a silver lining kinda gal that likes to see the good amidst the negative. It’s no joking matter when something you truly adore gets damaged…like your favorite bibs. sniff. I won’t say I shed a tear, but I was definitely feeling low that I ruined this pair with bleach. Has that ever happened to you? Today, I’m sharing how to fix bleached spots on fabric with a little ingenuity.
Here’s the backstory to my drama. I found two pairs of bib dresses at the thrift store made by Eddie Bauer. They were in like-new condition and made of some of my favorite textiles: one in linen, and this green one is
I don’t know about you, but one of the cutest things that is available to dress a baby are bib overalls. Am I right? Little cuties crawling around or toddling in these just deserve a squeeze. I no longer have littles that require these, so when an idea struck I had to head to the thrift store to locate a pair. My vision entailed upcycling a pair of baby bibs into a fun DIY doorstop. Hang with me now.
The last Tuesday of each month I present my Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION series with the intent to inspire you. The idea is to take something to recreate your
Oh happy dance over here! I’m super excited to be back at my sewing machine again for my reduce, reuse, REFASHION fun I share this time each month. What’s that, you say? I am aiming to encourage you to reduce waste, reuse what you have on hand, and refashion it into something for yourself, your home, or for others. Today these hand-me-down bits of cloth are going to become a feed sack tote bag.
Let me just say I have the most awesome friends not only nearby, but online too. When I have readers who think of me and send me goodies, it truly touches my heart. A fellow blogger named Lucy was in the middle of moving and couldn’t take all of her
Don’t you just love that feeling when you get together with your friends to share an activity that you all enjoy? Today is our reduce, reuse, REFASHION time where my blogger friends and I get together to share with you (our reader friends) our latest upcycling fun. You’ll see their projects in just a bit. For my project, I’ve chosen to show you how to take upcycled belts and turn them into home decor.
Maybe that piques your attention and maybe you also think, “no way.” haha. Either way, let’s have some crafty fun!
I am so excited to write this post today because I’m not only getting to introduce you to a group of fabulous ladies, but also share a project that is fun to create. My blogger friends and I are officially launching our Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION fun today. Our goal is to inspire you to whip out that dusty sewing machine, needle and thread, or just plain enjoy watching us create too (for those not sewing minded). My project for you is a DIY child’s apron that can be adapted to kids from 1 to 99.

You will see their projects down below in a bit. For now check out what I dug out of my linen stash. What you see above is some scrap fabric, a remnant of my linen
