The definition of 'Upcycling' is:
"The practice of taking something
that is disposable and
transforming it into something
of greater use and value".
So, basically, any item that someone doesn't want anymore and/or would throw away, maybe because it is old, out of shape, holey, or simply something that would be usually be thown in the recycling bin. Anyway...you get the idea! These things are then taken and made into new, useful items.
I have started on this upcycling journey for the very simple reason that it fascinates me! I find it amazing, satisfying, challenging and rewarding to create new from used and tired. Also, selling the items I have upcycled means that I can help with the family income, whilst fitting in Mummy duties AND doing something I love to do...designing and making!
I hope that you will find lots of inspiration on this blog and that you too will be encouraged to upcycle some items of your own.
