So today I happened to come across a new blog called outsapop.
just after reading a couple of posts, I had already a huge to do list created in my mind... this blog is so dang inspiring!

especially this post got my attention

I think this trend is kind of old and lots of you guys may already know about it, but I didn't. In fact I read about it today for the first time
so I researched how to shredd shirts and stuff and came upon this lovely video:

this is exactly how a tutorial should be like (for easy projects) no babbling or silly music, just quick and easy steps to follow.

So after this, I grabbed a shirt and started pulling the threads...and didn't stop for several hours.
Sitting 7 hours straight isn't good for your body... -.-
but I finally finished it and even though I ripped a hole in it on one side, I still like it a lot ^^
Best thing ever?
It looks awesome with my new thrifted blazer =D

long time no

Oh well, my last skirt was done so fast, that I did another upcycle project today.
The colors are all wrong, but whatever -.-
I hardly ever wear pink or anything near it, so it is a nice change to have a little purple pink skirt that doesn't look that bad. feels girly ^^

This is the original skirt

It was a lot of fabric, even if it doesn't look like it.
Fortunately I could reuse the zipper 

and, though I liked it with only a belt,
I liked it even better with buttons

  For a better picture, original version and the upcycled one next to eachother

ReSales and other thrift shopping

I haven't updated in a while.
I wasn't really busy, more like I had nothing to write about, ya know?

On wednesday I was thrift shopping at ReSales and found some awesome stuff for about 10€!
those two nighties for example (2€ each)

 I probably make some cute summer skirts off them

And then I found some new shirts

I just love the colors of this one!

I have some really good ideas how to upcycle these ^^

and since I was just recently at a second hand shop but hadn't gotten around to making anything out of it yet, I decided to recycle one of those items first, before altering the new clothes.
So here you go:

my new skirt ^^
