So in last Monday's Post with the Recycled Denim Bird Pillow Project I posted about the Swap-o-rama rama. Well here are a bunch of pictures and projects from the glorious day of clothing upcycling!
Here we are, the morning "sorters" with our illustrious leader and organizer of the day-Lori Petitti.
And here are The L.A. Craft Mafia girls silk screening their logo on anything you want!
As directed I ironed my shirts when I got home to set the ink.
This shirt was printed over another logo-cool effect eh?
They also had pre-screened logos on patches.
Since I pretty much spent my whole time there working sorting cloths, I didn't get to craft there. I did snag a shirt that I will restyle and stitch this patch onto. Check back for my new look!
Here is a wild lace up design brought to you by www.redrawnarts.com.
Monster Madness was busy making creatures from T-shirts.
Crafting with clothing is not only for adults. Kids got in on the action too with workshops.
And if that wasn't enough pop on over to Maria's Flickr to see the full sets from the day!
If I have wet your whistle with the need to grab your scissors and ink and make some new duds from your old cloths but still need a bit of direction, poke around this here blog under sewing, upcyling, and recycle buttons on the right or grab yourself some of our wonderful titles like:
Easy-Sew Projects for Fun Fashion
A treasure for sewers, crafters, and creative fashionistas.
All of these books are packed full of great ideas, patterns and inspiration.
Look for the Crafty Blogger links tomorrow. They are gooooood!
