Upcycling is all the rage for crafters right now. For those of you who are not as fashion savvy... The concept is simply repurposing an item to make it fabulous. Crafters love it because it is environmentally and economically sound. Buyers love it because it frequently means that you are getting a one of a kind item.. I mean, how many aprons can you make out of your grandmother's lace curtain?? Items are less likely to be duplicated when materials are not commercially available.
Here is an order I did where I made items using the leftover material from a baby's nursery. So, what started as crib sheet material turned into nursery decor and matching accessories! This made for the perfect baby shower gift, meaningful and unique.
