Up cycling (re purposing) is reusing something to make something else. I recently started using old jeans and pants to make purses and totes! I got tired of having a huge mending pile of things I'd fix, only to have my husband return it with yet another hole! There are only so many patches you can add to jeans or pants! So instead of throwing them away, I decided I could make them into something useful! You can use the entire pair of jeans! You can also re use old wool sweaters and turn them into woolies to go over diapers! Super cute.
I'd like to hear more ideas for up cycling....so add your comment! Tomorrow I'll post a tutorial! Yippee!
