Sustainable Sewing

Sewing is fun, but it can also be thrifty and eco-conscious. These are two of my eco-sewing projects.

Garment Rescue 1212

Garment Rescue 1212 is my back-of-the-closet remake challenge: 12 garments in 12 months. Each month, I’ll take you through another remake of a garment that I like but don’t wear into a new favourite, with photos, equipment, techniques, and tips. Check out this project’s main page for more information.

Capstone Challenge

A pile of colourful fabric scraps.
A crazy quilt is a fun way to make something attractive and useful out of your offcuts.

“The stone that was rejected has become the capstone” (Psalm 118: 22-23)

Fashion generates an obscene amount of waste, from pollution from dyes and synthetics production to offcuts to non-biodegradable fabrics taking up space in landfills.

Reusing your scraps addresses all of these types of waste. It reduces the need for new fabrics (and the associated pollution) and makes something useful from the rejected bits.

Sew along with me as I learn new techniques and find creative uses for my offcuts.

And in the meantime, check out what I’ve been doing recently.
