Hello Readers. Sometimes clothes get worn out. It happens. But if you love something and want to keep wearing it and make it last longer there are ways to mend and repair clothes that anyone can do.

Hello Readers. I had been wanting a drawstring style bag for makeup and toiletries. I decided to try and make one for myself. I had fabric around to use but I didn't have a pattern. Would I need one? No! It turned out so easy I had to share.

Hello Readers. I had an IKEA pillow cover, actually I had 2. My daughter was getting rid of 2 linen pillowcases/covers. I saw them and knew they were great upcycle material.

Hello Readers. It's going to sound weird but I turned an IKEA pillow cover into a skirt. The linen fabric was really nice and the color was so perfect for fall. I Wasn't sure if I could make it work but I really thought I could do it. And I thought it would go with this shirt so well.

Hello Readers. I did a little jacket refashion. I wanted this trench coat to be shorter, more of a jacket. I decided to try to shorten it and see if I could do it.
This trench coat was so thin and light that it wasn't worth wearing when it was really chilly out. It was more of a light jacket weight. Almost a "shacket". I thought I might wear it more if it was shorter.
Then I had to turn the edge under twice. It was a thin fabric without a full lining so I thought it would work.
Then I looked at it. I didn't like the button at the hemline. It didn't look right to me.
I liked it so much better now so it was worth it.
