Recycled Fashion. It isn't too often that a Mother of a young child gets the opportunity to indulge in a little weekend shopping with her best friends followed by an exquisite high tea, both of which were on my agenda this past weekend.

Recycled Fashion

On Saturday, a group of us I hit the Op Shops for a morning of recycled shopping and coffee stops. We had so much fun together, picked up a bargain or two and found a few oddities along the way. The award for the weirdest find of the day; a bouncy ball chair on wheels. I can't think why this particular piece of furniture even exists, wouldn't it be interesting to hear its history prior to finding its way into an Op Shop?

Handmaker's Factory. Recycled Fashion: Refashioned Sweater Skirt and Legwarmers. Following on from last week's sweater skirt inspiration, I found a great second hand knit in Salvos for $6 which turned out to be perfect for this refashion project.

Recycled Fashion: Upcycled Striped Sweater Skirt and Legwarmers

Today it is so cold here in Melbourne, and from what I gather, my Northern Hemisphere friends are still sunning their faces in the warmth of the summer sun. In an effort to keep warm, this is my second sweater skirt sewing refashion. I found the stripey jumper in the sale at a local church affiliated Op Shop for $2.50 (it always makes me smile to find a sale at an Op Shop, considering the original prices are so low anyway). As with my first sweater skirt refashion sewing project, which also happened to be a turtle neck, I've snipped off each arm and body. The body becomes the skirt, and arms become legwarmers. :: $2.50 Thrifted Jumper :: :: Remove Sleeves and Turtle Neck for Skirt :: Recycled Fashion: Refashioning Vintage Scarves into Wearable Fashion Garments - Lori Marsha.

The Wool: All wool fibres have scales on the fibres, it's this rough texture that will allow us to felt, or lock, the fibres together to create something beautiful.

Needle Felted Owls

The best wool fibre for Needle Felting is one that is coarse, with a shorter fibre length, like Perendale or Corridale. The wool is used in it's unspun form, called roving or sliver. The Needles: Felting needles have little grooves, like barbs, along the sides of the point that capture the scales on the wool fibres and lock them together. As you poke your needle through the wool it will shrink up and felt together in the direction that you poke your needle. Be careful not to bend the needle, they are very fragile and can break easily. Start Your Owl: Pull off a piece of the owls body colour and roll it into a nicely shaped ball, slightly larger then you want your finished owl to be.
