Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Upcycle: Repurposed neck ties & zippers

Blue Velvet Chair is my new blog crush!  Thanks to Mike (the host), I spent a long time gawking at the many, amazing repurposed ties (pictured above) being created by Alisa of Ties and Whimsy. Doesn't every girl want to wear a man's tie?  I think so.  Especially when they look like this!  I had a *very* hard time choosing a few to feature in this post ... amazing stuff.

Wanna try it yourself?   Rachel, of Maybe Matilda, has a ton of awesome tutorials on offer.  But this pleated neck-tie how-to will serve as a great springboard if you want to emulate Alisa.  Here's to creative refashioning, feminine repurposing and whimsy!

Lots of tutorials out there for making zipper flowers ... I really like this one from Maya Road Company:
