The item you start with can be just about anything: a wool sweater, a T-shirt, a skirt, a tablecloth, placemats. And the item you change it into can be just about anything, too: a tote bag, a quilt, a child's dress, a rug.
I started a board on Pinterest with a few upcycling links. You can check it out here.
And below are just a few more ideas of upcycled items I've made.
|A T-shirt I bought freshman year of high school is now a pillow.|
|My husband's old sleeping bag turned into a quilt.|
Have fun with your upcycling! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with at our April meeting!
