Swishy Clothes Swap Circle, happy fishy.

Feeling better dressed! Yus, don’t you love a dress swap, last night’s Circular Fashion event at My Hotel in Brighton was a great evening, (did I mention the delights of discount cocktails). I came away with a little lilac halter top, the label reads, Traffic. It’s seen some action as the square sequins around the edging have started to fray and fall off.

It’s still a magical garment, someone once made it and someone has worn it and loved it !

I know what to do about the gorgeous sparkly-ness, the sequins themselves are very precious. Activism fish all wear eyewear and this little number has just what’s needed for remaking a woolly fish’s lids into disco-ball eyelids! Just to gently mention, whilst we talk disco; too much glitter is a bit of a cause for concern, but you know that, to avoid the aluminium coated with plastic stuff (bad glitter) then head to gulit-free ones instead like biodegradeable eco glitter.

Swishy fishy, disco-ball eyelids – yus !

Enough of this chat, I’ve got some reuse bling bling to hook up and happy to be reusing this irridesent beut.

Summer Season Fiesta Headdress

As a textile designer and  reuse maker I like to work with a colour story that reflects a mood or season. I’ve been carrying around a very vibrant pallette  for a while, (back in the gloomy winter months it was stashed in my wallet), it’s helped me to pick out and respond to rescue fabrics for up and coming projects.

It’s bright, like a fiesta you could say, these images have been a strong starting point for my soon to published DIY doable summer fiesta headdress class, crochet chilli’s are optional, but pompoms will of course be required !

Assorted Samples, Reuse T-Shirt yarn
Preloved t-shirt yarn, summer work in progress

I’ve assembled a range of #reuse jersey material, in the form of preloved t-shirts and have handmade yarn ready to use for the crochet, macrame and knotted working stages.

This is a bright backdrop of sample snippets, soon to follow – a summer festival, fabulous fiesta headdress !

Stay posted  🙂
