Upcycling workshop

3 upcyclers + 3 hours = 3 pieces of clothing saved from being discarded! Each of us brought a damaged piece and although we didn’t arrange that on purpose, all three pieces in need for mending were completely different. We had an extremely lightweight delicate fabric, denim and merino wool to repair and as you guess each material needed an individual approach.

For her light dress Gloria used some thin yarn to fix the hole first and a rainbow colored metallic thread for the embroidery design. It´s gonna be a cute shiny fly!

I decided to put the colored dots all over the moth-eaten sweater and used mending wool from my collection of special yarns I got at a flea market last summer. This sweater is such an eye candy already!

Sophie´s jeans went through a two-step repair process. First some strong woven fabric was glued at the backside of the damaged part, then Sophie added sashiko style stitches to reinforce the denim and voilà the jeans is good to go again!


  1. Great blog here! Also your website loads up very
    fast! What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link
    to your host? I wish my website loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come
    here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?

    Fantastic work!

  3. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!

  4. I used to be recommended this website by means of my cousin. I’m no
    longer positive whether or not this put up is
    written through him as no one else understand such particular about my difficulty.
    You’re wonderful! Thanks!

    continue to guide other people.

  7. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    However think of if you added some great
    graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips,
    this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Good blog!
