Vintage clothing = Christmas decorations

I found a ton of vintage wool clothing and blanketsat the thrift store over the years. Of course I couldn't resist buying some. Thrift stores are the bomb! I wasn't planning on using them on anything in particular, but this is what my little mind came up with so far for the 2008 holiday season. I have sold a few on etsy and the rest are still up for sale.

It feels good to make things from old discarded things. "Upcycled" is the perfect word for it. It's not exactly recycling, it could be reusing, but it definitely is Eco Friendly and Fun!

Let me know what you think of my newest creations! I have so many ideas in my head. All I need now is TIME.


I started with a pile of clothes and blankets from the thrift store....


This is what I made...

Those are great! I love "junking," as we call it in our family. And, I love to see someone recycling/reusing/upcycling!
