Love this new design! Perfect for keeping my bullet journal and specialty pens all in one place. Also enough room to tuck my kindle in there too.

Love the colour and detail in the Peace : Zippered Pouch. I ordered 2 and they’re lovely. Will probably give these away as well and perhaps tuck something inside for a birthday gift for a friend.

I love these little momo pouches. I ordered 3 of them to have on hand to give to friends. They are all unique and my friends love getting these lovely, creative and useful items that Cindy has made.

Very sweet, and exactly what I was hoping for as a present for my niece. Received when expected and loved the way it was wrapped! :) Thank you.

Thank you so much for this gorgeous clutch bag - a Christmas gift from me to me! So beautifully made and wrapped. Locally made from repurposed materials, it is the perfect addition to my sustainable wardrobe :)

I ordered 6 of these lovely little momo pouches. They are all unique and all made with attention to detail. They arrived in Canada within weeks after I placed the order. I think they will be just perfect when I want a small but special gift for some friends this Christmas.
Preloved Textiles :: Reimagined
Wonder What You Were is a team of two - me and my sewing machine!
All creations are designed and handcrafted by me in my home based studio in Adelaide, South Australia using recycled or remnant textiles, beads and embellishments. Most often, the only brand new elements are the zips, thread, interfacing, cotton webbing straps and label.
Recycled elements encompass a wide range of deconstructed preloved items including, clothing, linens, curtains, blankets, doilies, upholstery samples, remnants, vintage textiles, jewellery, belts, handbags and anything that catches my eye as a suitable colour, pattern or texture.
This eco business is an extension of how I try to be in everyday life, being mindful of my impact on this environment and working to refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible. I hope to inspire others to follow this path.
Imagining you making use of my creations makes me happy and I just love to see customer action photos, please feel free to tag me in your Wonder What You Were action shots on Facebook or Instagram @wonderwhatyouwere.
You can also find me at local markets in and around Adelaide, South Australia - visit www.wonderwhatyouwere.com for upcoming dates.
Enjoy visiting my shop, and whilst you’re at it, you can…wonder what they were!
