    Keepsakes from old clothes 1st Jun 19 at 7:24 PM
    Not necessarily a memory bear, I’m open to any ideas. My d.d was in a tidy mood today and shamed me into tidying my own wardrobes where obviously there are clothes I refuse to throw away for varying reasons.
    I wouldn’t attempt to make anything myself, can anyone recommend anyone/anywhere to make something? Thank you.
    Life is like a bath, the longer you are in it the more wrinkly you become.

    You would need to find an upcycler.

    A couple of my friends make new things from old clothes such as purses, bags etc and they look really nice.

    Maybe you could have a go with something not of sentimental value and see how you get on?
