Upcycled Fashion – Give an Old Item a New Look

Introducing a new section for DIYs where Priyanka i.e. Priee, will show you ‘How to re-cycle and re-use old items‘.
In her words:
Upcyled – New and Improved!
Upcycled is a fancy way to say that you have used your creative juices and made something out of a well-used item and I love that it is being put that way. Just makes your craft feel so much more important.


Turning an old garment or bag into a new piece of accessory is one of my favourite challenges. Anyone can buy some fresh fabric and make a bag right?
The idea is to match a few different elements aesthetically. Here are a few examples of my favourite old items made into something new. I have used pebbles, cord, a couple of scarves and a few beads in most of them. All it takes is some free time and patience.
 Inspirations from Etsy.com, Marthastewart.com and Tipnut.com
Next Blog post will include detailed instructions on How tos’. Keep visiting Style.. A Pastiche! to learn more.
