A Round Tuit 359

Happy Monday from Cairns!
Welcome to this week's linky party. A place where you can link up your posts and creations, and be inspired by others.

Tuits are very hard to come by, especially the round ones. For years people have been saying, "I'll do it as soon as I get a round tuit". Well now you can have one of your very own, and all those jobs that have needed doing will finally get done!
 
 
 
Here's my favourites from last week's party:
 
First of all,  this beautiful 
Handkerchief Pillow Cover from Joy's Jots, Shots and Whatnots.



For those featured, feel free to grab a 'featured on' button here.

2 Little Lightbulbs - my daughters' store!


With all the clothes upcycling I do myself, I thought it only fair that I give my daughters a shout out.

They have a little Junior Madeit shop called



Currently they have several upcycled denim jean bag tags that they made - with inspirational quotes on them.
Like this one..

Or this one..


My girls are both keen swimmers, so there are a few tags in there with swimming quotes too!


They would love it if you popped over to their shop to take a look. Maybe you'll find a tag you like - or perhaps might make a nice gift for a friend! Upcycled and Handmade - what more could you ask?

600+ Clothes Upcycling Projects


Not long after I started this blog a few years ago, I discovered clothes upcycling.  I initially started out sewing with old clothes as a way to learn and practise so as to make my mistakes on old fabric.  Then gradually as my girls grew up, I gained a collection of their old clothes that had too many memories attached or were just too cute to pass on or throw out, so I started to find ways to upcycle them into things to keep.

Back in 2011, I set myself a challenge to work my way through my stash of clothes to be upcycled and make something every day for a month. Here are some of the things I made:



And on the last day, to use up the last of the clothing scraps - a scrappy monster that my daughter still has today!


The same time I was doing this challenge myself, I opened up a linky where other people could add their own clothes upcycling projects.  This linky is ongoing and still remains open.  Today it has well over 600 ideas linked up for upcycling those old clothes.

There are some amazing and very creative ideas linked up - from making new clothing items from old, to jewellery, toys, bags and many other things.

To take a look, you can go here.


Over the years I've set myself new challenges to upcycle clothes - larger projects to fundraise for my daughters' school and sporting clubs.

And plenty of upcycles just for my girls and our family.
You can find many of these upcycles in the 

600+ Clothes Upcycling linky


Many on my Upcycle Tutorials Page.

And then of course there's a whole set of posts I wrote, grouping together ideas for upcycling specific items of clothing - everything from t-shirts to jeans, and underwear to swimwear!


So please do take a look around at all the ideas to be found here, and feel free to add your own clothes upcycling ideas to the ongoing..

Clothes Upcycling Linky



I shall be linking this post to many of the fabulous linky parties whose pretty buttons and direct links can be found on my linky party page.
