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