Greener living by re-sewing and upcycling

Mrs Ingy | Posted in Teach Yourself To Sew on

 

Learning how to sew from a pattern can be quite daunting, not to mention time-consuming. In the recent years I’ve focused on re-sewing, upcycling, re-designing. It’s a much more gentle passage into the world of sewing, and it is also great for our planet. 

By resewing instead of keep buying you reduce your carbon footprint drastically. And you get to play desinger. It’s a win, win, win situation. 


Anyways, this year me and my best friend are not allowed to buy a single new outfit, only revamp what we already have. 

 

For more information and inspiration, take a look at my blogg:
