City & Guilds Recycled Project

Leave a comment

Above is the item I made for the recycling part of the City & Guilds I am taking.  This skirt started life as a pair of my little son’s trousers.

It seemed a shame to ‘waste’ these trousers by completely destroying them to create something very different to their original use.  I cut the legs off, dyed them, stencilled them and some of the leg fabric, sketch stitched the ‘flowers’ attached the spare flowers and satin stitched the hem.
