Recycling / Upcycling / Repurposing

on January 13, 2013

Whatever you want to call it, it’s what you do when your chenille sweater develops an unexpected hole and you can’t repair the hole but you don’t want to discard the sweater. So I went to work with scissors, needle, thread and ribbons and now have two new cushions – one large and one small, and a pair of legwarmers. I’m not usually a fan of legwarmers on anyone other than ballet dancers, but it’s so damn cold here in the Czech Republic that I’m making compromises. A silk flower and knitted flower brooch (thank you Deb Garrety) were all that were needed to give the cushions a finishing touch. Feeling so pleased with myself I may just have a glass of red wine to celebrate.
