Upcycling with Nicky Garrett
MAKE A RAG DOLL
Take something old and ragged and change it into something new and amazing. Upcycling can change the mundane and old fashioned into something fabulously fashionable, giving it a new lease of life. Great for the environment and your pocket!
An old pair of jeans can be turned into a range of products from jean skirts to handbags or cushions to armchair covers
Old off cuts of fabrics can be changed into patchwork blankets or rag dolls, that will be cherished by the family for years to come.
Squares scarves can be simply sewn together to create funky dresses, skirts and tops.
Customise and patch up old denim jackets and jeans to be completely unique. These are just a few ideas but the possibilities are endless.
Come along to Kayes Textiles every Thursday 1.30-3.30pm to have advice and tutoring in the skills required to turn old garments and Textiles into something new.
