If I wasn’t careful, I could literally spend hours a day scrolling through Pinterest. There are so many beautiful pictures and amazing ideas on there!
I have a Board for DIY and Upcycling ideas (you can follow me at HemingwayLove.) And, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite upcycling projects in case you’re getting ready for a new wardrobe, or want to projects to work on for back to school!
1. Men’s Shirt Upcycled Into a Dress
If you have sewing skills, call me because I want to make this! You can see the original dress here on Pinterest.
Wouldn’t this amazing dress look cute with some white Converse, and one of our fair trade bags? I think our Sunflower Backpack would look great paired with this dress.
2. Added Lace
First, look at this incredible shirt here on Pinterest.
Ok, next, this is actually a Free People shirt. But the design is amazing and I think it gives all of us lots of ideas on how we could update and upcycle our thermals to make them more feminine and interesting. I think this shirt would look perfect with our Lace Hobo Bag.
3. Create an Apron
You can find this incredible apron here.
Isn’t this apron gorgeous! To me, I could never wear something like this in the kitchen. I think this apron would work best as a type of dress, with a plain colored short-sleeved blouse underneath, and colored tights or skinny jeans. I think this upcycled apron would pair best with our own Recycled Sari Bag.
