I have had a couple of months to recover from my year-long dress making challenge. I had this idea in my head that once I didn’t have to make something each week I would have all of this inner creativity freed up and I would be making clothes left and right. Well the truth is I barely even touched my sewing machine until about 2 weeks ago and what I have seen has taken me too long and has been very difficult. I have not had a creative purpose and that leaves me bored and without a healthy outlet for stress.
Then this bag came into my life…
My friend, and previous shirt supplier, Kelly sadly moved out-of-town recently. Before he went he asked me if I wanted a few shirts of his to upcycle. I pictured 3 shirts. What I got was a bag of 16.
My challenge is to upcycle the 16 shirts. I have no rules about what I can turn them into and I have no timeline, though I would be happy to get about one project a week done. Wish me luck.
