Introducing the latest addition to my 2017 eco clothing collection. Made using upcycled material, and sewn entirely by hand! The breathable, light-weight cotton and vibrant colours make it perfect for summer. The bottom is decorated with delicate and wooden beads, and the waist is elasticated. I’ll be using this pattern again with all kinds of interesting and unique materials, so keep an eye out for photos on my twitter and facebook!

 

In celebration of all things upcycled and eco-friendly, I’ve done some digging to unearth some of Folksy’s best upcycled and eco makes. Support small businesses whilst also supporting our Earth by checking out these talented makers:

Andiecrafts – Who would want to use plastic shopping bags when you could show off this colourful creation?

QuiltingDemon I love all of shop owner Lesley Bywater’s colourful, unique creations, and the majority are made using upcycled materials! I adore her crazy patchwork slippers and coats.
