So what is upcycling? Basically it’s taking an unwanted item and making it better – the folks at upcyclemagazine.com say it best. We call it Restyling!
Since our last post, I’m yet to go through our big bag of goodies from Flemington Market so thought I would upload some things we have made from our last trip to Flemington Markets.
I found a beautiful large cushion cover – unfortunately I didn’t take a photo of the original item 😦 At first I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it – I was thinking of making a little dress out of it for my 7 month old niece and then I decided to use a little piece of it to make some flowers for the restyled disco shoes I was making.
Since then I decided to make shoe clips and hair clips from the left over material.
I then restyled some of the decorations from my other niece’s recent 4th birthday and made some shoe clips and hair clips.
What do you think of our creations? If you are just too excited and you would like to see more of our creations check us out on pinterest – lovenotesstudio (we are still trying to figure out how to put buttons on our blog!)
We are still slowly working on our blog – it’s all very new to us – so stay patient with us whilst we get it all together 🙂
Take care, until next time…keep restyling!
