Reuse Textiles


Posted on 5 February 2019

If something you love is beyond repair, then the next thing we want you to think about is could it be reused instead?

Could that jersey t-shirt which has lost its colour be turned into a reusable shopping bag? Could the jeans with the massive rip be turned into a tablet sleeve? Or could that old men’s shirt be turned into a halter dress instead?

There are loads of ideas and inspiration out there on YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram, so get looking to see what catches your eye.

Lacking inspiration? We’re really excited to see the return of The Great British Sewing Bee which is due to hit our screens next Tuesday (12 February) at 9pm.

This is not only the programme to inspire you to repair, in previous series it also got the amateur sewers taking an item and turning it into something completely different, so if you want to get the creative juices flowing make sure you give it a watch next week.
