Upcycling my Wedding Quilt

In 1997, I sewed a quilt to display at my wedding ceremony but I didn’t love the design, so I have upcycled it into items I love more.

Fluffy Rug Course

When I shared my new fluffy rug method made from recycled t-shirts, the social media posts went viral, so I have now made an online course so you can make your own!

Umbrellas Creative Reuse

You can make so many useful items from a broken umbrella, using just the fabric, just the frame, or both!

Visible Mending

There is a creative reuse trend to mend your clothes with decorative stitches, making the item stronger and also more beautiful.

Weighted Blankets

Most weighted blankets get their heft by containing plastic or glass pellets but I made one with recycled denim blue jeans.

Memory Keepsakes

Memory keepsakes are items made from clothing when someone passes away.

Denim Jeans Recycling

What can you make with jeans that are out-of-style, ripped beyond repair or painted, or with the leftovers when you make a quilt from jeans?

Wedding Dress Repurposing

Your wedding dress can live in your closet for decades “just in case” you find a use for it. But what if your dress could help another bride? Get ideas on where to donate or sell your dress, as well as projects to transforms your dress into a keepsake.

Hooked Rug Gifts

Rugs I have hooked from recycled yarn, wool, t-shirts and other fibers as gifts to family and friends
