My first post up here ^^ so I hope you enjoy it!

Like so many others I upcycle second hand clothes bought -only- from charity thrift stores- so the entire cost of the item is donated to charity directly, then i make something new out of it. I've fallen in love with the whole thing! Even been teaching my friends!

Anyways, here's some stuff I made lately!

Princess Mononoke Tank top


Don't Make your Bed, WEAR YOUR BED Pajamas!
Made from Vintage Bed sheets-


An All time Fave "Future Rock star" Halter top! <3 it so hard!!


Grimm Adventures of Billy and Mandy Tank top Hoodie! Great for those Hot summer nights!


"I love Tea Parties" Pink Mock Corset top!
The lacing in the back is all done with neck ribbing and t-shirts cords too! EVERY think is upcycled!


Last but not Least
My Working Class Hero Tank and Tye-dye handbag!


I just opened a Etsy, but things are very slow. SOOOO I hope you'll give me great input on what I can do better and what you do and don't like about these do I can improve! Constructive Criticism ALWAYS welcome!
Thanks again!

These are all so amazing! I love that you're upcycling too. I wish I knew how to do recon so I could upcycle some of my sheets. *this rocks*

I love these!  If my boobs were a teensy bit smaller, I would totally buy one of your shirts.  But big boobs and tight shirts just look tacky together, in my opinion.  Sad  I may contact you for a trade or custom order sometime, though.  I like your style!

fluffy- Yeah i totally feel you then! Being tiny int eh torso and big in the chest >< all your shirts are either to tight on the bust, or to short in the torso- booo. I'm working on patterns for tops made just for busty ladies! (there one in my shop, lol, made from an old Trojan condoms tshirt lol) Because, yeah, the world like busty women, but fashion doesn't really support us. LOL

Haha, too funny!  So not my style, though.  I'll keep an eye on your shop for more things to come.

Stunning - I think I love the pink mock corset best. I love making stuff out of bed sheets and they're so cheap to buy from thrift stores. The bag I made for a party was out of a bedsheet.

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

That one was a pin to make, but i'm glad the result was pleasing. It was sort of a crazy idea i didn't even know if it would work.

Bed sheets are awesome for everything <3
