I think I'd like to join in with this one.
I do have a knit test on the go and about to start some teeny slippers too, test wise(with a long way off finish date), but I'd love to join in and make something. No idea what but it will get me thunkin.  :thinking:
Sew it needs juice! 😁

Well I’ve chopped up all my old clothes that i no longer needed and have saved as much of the fabric as possible. Here is a picture of all what’s available to me to use to recycle in to another garment, i might not use all of it and I have an idea what I’m going to try and make, whether it looks any good is another matter.
“I will not buy any fabric until I use my fabric stash at home,”  and then i laughed and laughed.

@realale PR had a denim theme as part of their year Sewing Bee contest if you need some ideas. Some were quite clever while others not so much. Denim Gallery


@Diane what was this?  I really like the big flowers.

@mudcat  That is a skirt, when it came to chopping it up I couldn’t do it so it’s now been hung back up in the wardrobe in the hope i can lose some weight for it to fit

Thank you @mudcat about PR, I had seen it but had forgotten about it.

I actually do quite a bit of upcycling denim and have done several waistcoats and two hooded coats as well as bags and rugs.  I did see a fantastic reupholstered chair which gave me ideas for the nano second I considered doing one as well!!

I have a pinterest board full of denim ideas (245 pins!!) most of which I will never try but the inspiration is there!!  0_0
So many beers, so little time. 🍻

@realale That chair is amazing! What a wonderful way to contemporize a stodgy old chair.

That chair is fantastic.  What a great idea.
