Oh say can you sew! Amanda at Mommy is Coocoo had a huge bag of fabric remnants and hit on a fabulously patriotic way to display them–she made a map of the USA!
“The 100+ year old couch had a lovely life but had resided in an airplane hanger for sometime,” Amanda says at Mommy Is Coocoo. Appreciating the sturdy frame and funk claw feet, she took it home and turned it into a bench for her boys’ bedroom.
Here’s a fun upcycling project from Curly Made. Daniela turned her old jeans into buckets. Yep, you read that right: BUCKETS.
I love this wreath made by Desiree of The 36th Avenue. Not only is it a lovely piece of Autumn decor, it’s made from upcycled materials!
Over at Mabey She Made It, Lisa had a pair of jeans that she wasn’t getting much use out of, anymore. “They looked good on me, but the rise was just too low for me to be comfortable in,” she tells us. Time for a refashion! (FYI, Lisa didn’t have a before picture, so her jeans were similar to the ones pictured below.)
Over at her blog, Joyful Daisy, Amy came up with a cute (and useful) way to reuse old pairs of jeans. She created durable placemats!
For Amy Jo of The Little Moments, comfort is key when it comes to selecting her clothes for the day. So, until she refashioned this denim skirt, she just wasn’t wearing it much. While the skirt fit, the waistband had some issues that just bothered her every time she wore it.
