I had the best time this weekend being creative and crafty and repurposing old clothes. I cleaned out all of the wardrobes of old clothes that were well worn and beyond repair. The clothes could not be donated to charity due to condition, however, rather than throw these clothes out I decided to make some unique and interesting cushion covers out of the old clothes. I had so much fun cutting and designing cushions covers and then sewing these cushion covers. They look quite pretty and colourful, perfect for a pop of colour during the winter months. I had the loveliest afternoon creating cushion covers!

  • That’s a great idea. Especially if you have clothes you don’t want to let go of!


  • Sounds like an awesome day. You should post the how to guide on the Arts and Crafts section, then others can do this, I know a few of my daughters clothes that I could do this too!


  • Recycling anything gives me a sense of pride…. I hate our disposable society. Well done


  • Quilters might also appreciate your leftover fabric.
