1. nessy tops by Crystal 2. the coolest pjs by Joke 3. floral paneled sweaters by Monica 4. preschool upcycle by Carin 

You guys have taken to the UPCYCLED theme like a fish to water (or like knits to a serger?). T-shirts are everywhere! They are pieced, color blocked, patched together in such stunning ways. Just look at that floral and striped number: one shoulder is black, the cuffs are floral, and the back is striped! Gorgeous!  I think when your choices are limited, your creativity flourishes.

1. upcycled raw edged raglan by Dana 2. colonel mustard skirt by Holli 3. dad’s pinafore by Nicki 4. exotic look for boys by An

Are you frustrated with a lack of choices? Or do you find yourself putting things together that you normally wouldn’t and loving the end result? Upcycling can be frustrating–who knows what fibers are in that old shirt–but having to make do, can make awesome things happen.
