A Summer of Upcycling



Though the Recycled Wares store specializes in vintage, I also love to make crafts that upcycle and recycle vintage items. This summer I focused on using some vintage fabric scraps that I had collected over the years. The fabric scraps seemed too small to use, but I didn't want to throw them away, so from much brain storming and designing, these objects were born.
