Recycling with a Twist
Taking items originally created for one purpose and reinventing them is always fun. Well. At least for me. The possibilities are endless and what better way to show your creativity?
I now create little mirrors covered with pieces of fabric I have come across at the fabric store, second-hand store and even in the scrap basket in the sewing studio.
Placed side by side, they form an eye-catching canvas that is also utilitarian. No one will ever have the same mirror which is even better!
Nowadays with the strong emphasis on re-using, recycling.. why not re-invent? We throw out so many things in the trash – let’s think about if it can be used in another matter.
Moral of the story, get creative! Are you looking at a patterned shirt – or could that shirt turn into a bag, get cut up and applied to a box or even become part of a quilt?
Simple. and so much fun!
