When you cant buy it, make it!

Brunswick

When you can’t find wise A5 folders – make your own!! Grabbed 2 folders from Salvos, used the jigsaw to cut them down to size and then used hand dyed old linen which I machine embroidered then covered with recycled pvc. Voila! Folders that fit my samples. 🍃🧵 #upcycled, #recycle #embroider #reuse #oldlinen #renew #remake #sustainableliving @salvosstores #salvos #opshop #newfromold #mendandmakedo

A great find 😄

Brunswick, Victoria

I found a Country Road jumper at the local charity shop. Brand new extra fine Australian Merino wool but with its shoulders and neck band sewn inside out. Calls for a bit of embroidery to disguise, the voila new to me jumper in time for winter ❄️😃 🧵🧵 #handstitching #wool #slowstitching #repair #sustainablefashion #renew #revamp #mending #visiblemending #handstitch #woollens #australianmerino #opshopfind #embroidery @countryroad
