What do you do with your old clothes when they wear out, or no longer fit, or you just don't like them any more?
For children's clothes, we often pass them on to friends with younger children. For adult clothes, they generally go to the charity shop. If the clothes are really worn, then perhaps they get used for cleaning rags, or just thrown out.
But sometimes they are favourites that we can't bear to let go. Maybe it's the fabric we like, or maybe the clothes have particular memories - especially clothes belonging to our kids.
I have used some clothes like this to make new things - upcycling them into something different that can be used and the memories or pretty fabric kept.
I've seen lots of ideas scattered here and here around the internet, but I wanted to create a resource of such projects all in one place.
Here it is!
