Announcing my newest online course, Project Upcycle! Creative reuse of materials – whether it’s a well-loved sweater, a thrift shop necktie, or your Grandmother’s old tablecloth – is eco-friendly, economical and fun. Why buy new when you can “make do” using your own creativity?Here’s a peek at a few of the projects in store:

Remix vintage linens…into a unique reversible wrap skirt!
Felt second-hand sweaters…into a cozy colorful tote!
Deconstruct skirts and jackets…into a menswear inspired Mad Cap!

I developed Project Upcycle to share my love of repurposing secondhand items. I’ll show you what to look for at the thrift store (or in your own closet!) and teach you techniques for transforming them into fun, functional and stylish additions to your wardrobe. We’ll make 5 projects: a chic shrug and an adorable tote from two different types of sweaters, a clever wallet from shirtsleeve cuffs, a dapper cap from menswear, and a swingy skirt from a stash of vintage linens.
