sewing holiday projects with recycled fabric

November 8, 2013


Vintage Bark and Chenille Stocking

Vintage Barkcloth  and Chenille Stocking

I’ve finished a few sewing projects.

 Holiday stockings, all made with recycled material.

Some of the material is really old, vintage and some new, like the boho gypsy stocking was a skirt that I purchased at a thrift store and took apart.

When I purchased my first sewing machine last year, the first thing I wanted to make were stockings.

 Well, that didn’t happen.  A year later, and few false starts I’m on my way.

The body of this one was made using vintage fabric, I’ve had for many years.  That piece of fabric on the cuff is new.  It is a left-over scrap from a chair I am reupholstering.

    I’m always impressed with folks who upcycle clothing into something new. Just saw a child’s dress upcycled from a man’s white shirt on Facebook.

    1. I saw a man’s dress shirt transformed into a lovely top for a women.
      I’ve been buying a lot of my current clothing from goodwill hoping to transform it into something. Lately I’ve just been wearing as is.I know my grandmother made a lot of things through thrifting. Guess I get it from her – it is in the blood.
