New Creations

Something about off white and black together is really elegant. Here's what I made:





The earrings are a total design in progress, but I really like how they turned out! I would love to experiment with more colors and shapes. I tried making beads out of t shirt material....err....no go. This site here teaches you how to make knotted fabric buttons and beads, maybe you'll have better luck than me!

In case you're wondering, yes I am obsessed in love with upcycling t-shirts, BUT I've signed up to sell some of my designs at a local art market! Who knew an old man tee could turn into something so beautiful :)

I have a few ideas of items yet to be created:

- recycled t-shirt tulip skirt
- recycled t-shirt brooch
- recycled t-shirt "feather" headband

Let me know what you think!
