Handmade from scratch and upcycled/embellished pre-owned clothing, accessories (fabric wrist cuffs, fingerless gloves, purses/bags), jewelry, sachets, accent cushions and window treatments, etc.. I use vintage/antique linens (doilies, hankies, tea and bureau cloths, tablecloths, etc.), buttons, trims, laces, unique findings, etc. as my base materials in making-from-scratch and upcycling/repurposing/embellishing pre-owned items. Most items are One-of-a-Kind.
* * * Vintage linen, cotton and silk fabric items and trims that I use for Upcycling/Repurposing have been gently hand-laundered and line-dried before being Upcycled/Repurposed into other items. Because they are Vintage, some imperfections (signs of wear, staining, small holes, fraying, loose threads from embroidery/needlework, etc.) may be visible. It is advised to gently hand wash these upcycled/repurposed items, roll in towel to remove excess water (do not wring) and hang to dry, as machine washing/drying could cause more damage to the delicate fabrics/trims. Gently (warm) iron if necessary. New fabric and/or trims may have also been used.
