The Ultimate List: 50 Upcycle / Refashion Projects To Inspire You

We have a lot of debt to pay off.  Instead of just limiting spending on new clothes, I’ve decided to not buy anything new at all.  This year will be number three of my clothing fast.  One of the ways that I’m making the most of the things that I already have is with upcyle or refashion projects.  All you really need are some things you don’t wear anymore, some basic sewing skills, and a little bit of creativity.  Here are 50 awesome projects (with links to tutorials) to give you some inspiration.

I love the look of a triangle of lace in the back.  Sorry, there is no link, but it looks pretty simple to execute.  It’s one that would help if your shirt or sweater is a little too tight.
