I clean out my closet and then keep the things I want to give-away so I can refashion them.
I can't help it. I see them as a stack of fabric. And heaven forbid I give away fabric.
And I have to admit it. I have two other stacks like this.
I'm so ashamed.
What if I cut up two shirts, and create a totally new one? What if I make a few alterations to an old sweater to totally transform it? What if I turn my old suede skirt into a stylish vest? The options are endless!
Some call it hoarding.
I call it keeping.
When I first started sewing, I had the re-fashion bug. Big time.
I refashioned a men's shirt to a skirt, a tablecloth to an apron, added big ruching to a sweater, added sequins to top or two, added ruffles to t-shirts, and cut up a tank top to make one with tiered ruffles...
Oh heck, here's a link to all my refashions.
Listing them separately is useless.
The real question is, what didn't I refashion?!
I'm currently working on a simple t-shirt refashion that I'll share with you once it's done. It's based on making a short t-shirt (that shrunk) a little longer. And no, this refashion doesn't use any of my left-over clothes. But someday I might just need them to do that!! hahaha Must. Keep. Clothes.
