Do you have heaps of clothes just lying around? Do you seem to have problems with storing them or not knowing what to do with them? There is a simple solution to all of your problems and it comes in the form of reusing them or upcycling them.
Most people have problems with getting rid of their old clothes. Sometimes the clothes go out of fashion or they get too small to wear. Packing them somewhere and storing them is often not an option. Our opinion is that you can always find a better use for it.
If you decide not to give away all of your old fashion items, you can easily spruce them up and turn them into alternative clothing or useful items for around the house. Here are some ideas on how you can recycle your old clothes and make completely new fashionable items.
Can you understand the wordplay? You take a sweater and you turn them into mittens in order to get smittens. An old sweater that has gone out of fashion will take up a lot of your space. You can’t store it and you can’t give it away. But what you can do is to turn it into fashionable hand warmers.
You don’t need a lot here, just some tools to help you cut the sweater out and sew it into some mittens. In just a few fancy moves you get some fashionable mittens for your hands in cold weather and at the same time get rid of that old pesky sweater.
If you still have some leftovers from that old sweater, you can reuse it into more items. Cold weather and hot drinks go hand in hand, but it does not really feel nice if you have to burn your hands. You don’t have to wear mittens while drinking hot cocoa as you can make knitted protection that you can put around your mug.
