I do like to mooch around the garden centre looking for plants that are a bit sad and neglected, and usually in the bargain bucket. I like to buy them, build them up and pop them in the garden or allotment. Most of my garden is stocked with bargain rack plants – and my garden is blooming nicely thank you!
I tend to also like mooch around charity shops and look through the rails to look for odd little items that look a bit sad and neglected. I like to try and think what I can do with them to revive them and make someone want them again.
Well I’ve been working my was through my pile and seeing what I can do with them. I posted an article a little while ago about reworking an old shirt and I’ve been doing some similar things to some other shirts.
Below is what I’ve done with a few shirts – mainly cutting and studding:
Here’s some of the cut of jeans/shorts that I’ve been working on – these have been cut, bleached, and studded:
Here’s a few skirts that I’ve recently customised – these have been studded mainly:
It’s quite nice seeing what they actually become as I don’t always know exactly what I’m going to do, and it kind of evolves as I work with the garment.
I’m always on the look out to try new things to try so I’d be interested to hear of any new projects I could try!
These reworked, customised items are available in our Quirky Purple Online Shop – happy shopping!
