Upcycle Your Shirt – to make it longer and to give it color.

Hey Everbody! Have you ever had a shirt and you wanted to create something different with it? I love recycling old clothes and making something new with it. I was at the thrift store and found two of the same dresses with this amazing colorful pattern and an off white chiffon shirt. I kept one of the dresses in my size for myself and I used the fabric of the other dress to add to the shirt.

Here is what you need:

  • Scissor
  • Sewing Machine
  • Shirt
  • Colorful Fabric
  • Pins
  • Ruler

Have fun upcycling your shirts!

Hey Everybody! Most people that know me have already seen my collection of these drawstring backpacks from my school time. I also remember a while back having a drawstring backpack  with a Mickey Mouse print for my gym gear that I used as an inspiration.

I have recently discovered a drawstring backpack pattern and used different fabrics.  For me they are very convenient and the fabric gives them an interesting and unique look.

Stay tuned for a more detailed post on these drawstring backpacks, their  sewing pattern and unique fabrics.
