Celebrating Earth Day - Refashion & Repurpose Ideas

I missed it completely yesterday. Earth Day.

Although I had a t- shirt in the process of refashioning and planned to be posted specifically, however it is not yet done so to mark the day - I compiled several projects I've done over the years of how to refashion and repurpose things. I hope you like the selection.

Tablecloth into a tunic                                           Doily turned into a bag
I still have this tunic and it is as gorgeous as the day I made it. Lovely for some formal occasions although the fabric did not let an inch get loose. The doily bag is mostly used for decoration and I have some crochet necklaces stored there, but would surely wear it if the right opportunity presents itself.


I participated in Agy's Making Good Blog Train and saved this old, stained cardigan's life  by embroidering flowers. It looks fantastic and I hardly ever get to wear it because Eva claimed it her own.
Turning old jeans into bag, especially beach bags has always been my forte. This one is among the most beautifully embellished of all.

 A scarf I made inspired by the mori fashion. Had all the female members of my family drool at this :)

This is another scarf I made combining Eva's old skirt with my favourite woolen scarf.

This one's been quite easy and effective. Hate throwing belts that still have life into themselves.
Well, that is all folks. I hope you get inspired to repurpose and refashion.

Save the Earth!
