Last year in May I set myself a challenge to work my way through a pile of clothes I'd saved and upcycle them all in a month. I achieved that goal and that month saw the start of the fabulous clothes upcycling linky which now has over 360 fabulous ideas linked up - and more being added all the time.
Plus a bag of scraps from earlier upcycling projects:
A pile of jeans I scored dirt cheap from a charity shop a while back..
I'm not going to attempt to get through all of those piles in just one month this time - I'm going to give myself a little more time and have it all finished by Christmas! so that's more or less 10 weeks!
And as one of my favourite motivational people Anthony Robbins says -
"..never leave the site of setting a goal
without first taking some form of positive action toward its attainment.”
So I took this dress and some blue fabric from my stash..
And made up one of my pencil and notebook folders.
I like to have at least one of these made up in the cupboard for unexpected kids birthdays!!
So - do you have a collection of unwanted clothes that could be upcycled? Do you want to join me in transforming them and clearing up some space before Christmas?
Do have a look at the clothes upcycling linky for some inspiration - I know I will be!
And I'll add any new projects I come up with in the coming weeks, and post about my progress with this challenge regularly!!
Wish me luck!!
