It's Tuesday and I can't wait... to start refashioning!!
I took The Pledge but really I have been doing it for the past 3 years. I made a conscious choice not buy new for myself. So I made my own, refashioned my own, op shopped and even swapped for nearly all the items I have. I feel better knowing that I am giving life to an unwanted item. This time I get to actually document and share what I make with you... Exciting stuff.
As well as not giving into the big "What's in Fashion" must be worn and multi billion dollar companies with a label everyone recognises therefore must have too.
I believe fashion is a personal choice and not what society (or Mum) tells you to wear!!
That's my little rant... I could go one but I don't want to be a fun sucker...
So I have a small collection of items I am looking forward to refashioning but I had no where to put them. BUT in true treasure hunt tradition Moo and I found these that someone had thrown out and they were perfect. I had been looking for a vintage pair of suitcases for ages and ages. The planets and stars alined for me especially last night.
One big one and one small one. I wonder how many places these suit cases had seen, clothes they had contained, people they had helped...? I would be amazed at the extraordinary story they could tell... and I would listen to every word.
The smaller one is my choice for storing my 'refashion wannabes' stash. I used a paper pattern to line the interior as it was a little rusty and grotty... just like the lid but I love the look of it and didn't see the point in having a vintage suit case if you can't se it's age so I left the lid as is!!
Voila... instant refashion wannabe's storage solution!!
Bubble and our cat Dory ( yes Dory as in the fish) had to inspect my marvelous idea for themselves.
Head over to Buttons By Lou Lou and see who else can't wait today.
