Upcycled: Skirts, cushions and hankies.

I don't know if you remember this post about an Upcycling Challenge Im taking part in? I mentioned I would make some upcycled items to be auctioned off for charity. I wanted to show you what I made, which will eventually be up for auction! I will give you the date when I know..there are some other great upcycled items that you can bid on(if you want).

First, is another one of my Kitchen Linen Skirts. I really like this one, that Ive made myself one too. This one was from a vintage table cloth. It's elasticated in the waste so it can fit a size 8 to 14ish. Ive added belt loops too.

I also made this crochet cushion. The back is made with a opshopped napkin and it uses opshopped buttons to close.

I've also upcycled some pretty hankies into a bunting.

Have you done much upcycling before? Let me know if you are interested in taking part in the bidding. I will get the date for you asap! Check out Go Mumma's blog for more details!
Hope your having a lovely first week of spring. I am!

  1. What beautiful creations. I love the skirt and also that cushion is lovely. I have been meaning to make hankie bunting for so long, but I can't seem to get my hands on enough that I am willing to use. Yours look really lovely xoxo

  2. Wonderful creations! I love that you made them for a good cause too, it makes them extra special.

    1. Yes, it gave me extra motivation, otherwise I could have gotten lazy and put them on a huge pile of other things half made!

  3. You are so clever and quite the upcycling queen! they all look fab!

  5. Ohh love the table cloth come skirt. I should convert a couple from the stash.
