In a sewing mood lately... #repurpose. #diy. #sewingprojects

Pin It Now!

    I have been in a sewing mood lately, could be because I'm teaching a sewing class this semester at our homeschool co-op or because I have a fun new craft desk in my room. Either way I'm really getting into repurposing certain clothing items to make new things,
The first project was an apron made from an old pair of jeans and about 3/4 of a yard of material. Think remnants and clearance rack at the craft store. 

The next project that I just completed tonight is a skirt using a man's shirt and a t-shirt. Too much fun, I got both pieces for this project at Salvation Army for less than $2 when they were having a 75% off green tags sale. I also like to go on Saturdays when they do 5 for $5. 

My next projects are a purse made from a child's hooded sweatshirt and a pair of winter mittens from an old sweater lined with fleece. I will be sure to post pictures when they are completed. I'm using these projects for my class and the girls are having so much fun. 
What are you doing to be creative?
