Refashion – Repurpose – Reware

One of my first moves to start off the new year was to go through my closets and drawers and remove anything that did not fit or for some reason was not being worn. I had no idea there was so many items of clothing just sitting there . . .  Now I know why I could never find anything to wear in spite of having clothes everywhere.

There sat two huge bags of clothing in the trunk of my car waiting to be delivered the Goodwill store here in our area . . . But then the idea came to me . . .  Instead of taking everything to be donated why not Refashion – Repurpose – Reware! So out came the bags destined for something different.

There are several very talented refashionistas on Pinterest and I have already trolled their sites for inspiration. I’ve added a new board to my own Pinterest site named “RefashionRepurpose Rewear” to continue to give me inspiration throughout the year. It is my hope that during this coming year these items will be turned into something brilliant as I endeavor to refashion or repurpose those items that were headed to a new home into something I can rewear.

Here’s to a great 2015!

    Wow, you gave me a great idea. I am going to go through my drawers and claret and revamp some things. Or at least I will try. My daughters father in law is here and he’s a tailor so guess where I’m taking everything to. Heehee
