Customising and adjusting
Sunday, May 23, 2010
There is another way to recycle clothes; this need not cost anything if you have a pair of scissors, needle and thread, old accessories and an imagination.
Cut up an old T shirt, stitch on some buttons, ribbons and sequins, and you have a new top. Make an old pair of jeans into a bag, or simply cut up an old pair of jeans into some cut offs.
One of my favourite bags was a hand made gift by a friend; a talented Florist called Jenny. Jenny cut up an old pair of Levis jeans, customised it with gem stones, and made it into a denim bag. It is completely unique because there isn't another bag like it anywhere.
