You may have noticed I mentioned upcycling in my links post over the weekend. My aunt brought it up over Thanksgiving when she heard about my blog.
Then my mom texted me about a blog post about a crafty upcycling project this morning. And I have to say, I’m pretty much in love.
Daisy Janie had a post about an upcycled cashmere sweater turned shrug. I mean, how cute is that transformation?
Her post was part of a series by Betz White, who is all kinds of creative. Betz’s Project Upcycled includes video lessons that are chaptered to walk you through each step and even allow you to take notes on the screen.
After a quick Pinterest search, I also stumbled across these cool leg warmers made from a sweater from Crochet Clouds.
I have to admit that I don’t feel crafty enough to take on these projects, but I love the idea of making something new from something old and unused. And it definitely made me want to do a little more thrifting, which is just something I haven’t made enough time for this fall.
Have you ever upcycled something? I’m ready to start some brainstorming.
