Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Upcycle: Spring a t-shirt re-new!


Chicago is so warm and sunny right now ... it's summer in March!  I want to string a hammock under a tree and drift through the days.  It will probably snow in April, but for now I'm staring at all the dull, grey/black/teal things in my closet.  Blagh!  So ... the hunt for (re) fresh, floral ideas begins.


 "Pochette" is not a word I'm familiar with but it's used to describe the sweet little bag above.  Created, of course, from an old t-shirt.  Great video tutorial from Shiho Masuda


Doesn't get much springier than this petaled make-over from Ruffles n Stuff ...


You know your husband/boyfriend/girlfriend's old grey t-shirt you've been sleeping in all winter?  Turn it into this Anthro-inspired tank.


Another way to take a darker winter color and brighten it up for NOW.  


Finally, take TWO of those old grey T's and combine them into this little thing.  Tutorial translated into English here.
