Zowie's Creations & Interview:






How long have you been Upcycling/Refashioning/Recreating Clothing from thrifted textiles?

8 years



How long have you been sewing?

Since I was 8.









How and why did you get started in Upcycling/Refashioning?

My grandmother taught me to sew, then gave me her machine and cottons. I despise patterns so decides to try something else- I made a bag using random bits, and was hooked!









Why do you Upcycle/Refashion/Recreate clothing from thrifted textiles?

Beautiful fabrics and vintage napery inspire me, as does the way denim ages so nicely. I don’t want to see them stashed in a cupboard or even worse, in landfill.



What type of clothing do you like to create and why?

I make bags, because I’m a bagaholic haha




What is your favorite textile to Upcycle/Refashion/Recreate from? and why?

Denim!

What was your favorite project?

I love them all!
