Teri Dankovich's Profile

About

I like to make things! My hobbies are constantly changing and growing. Lately, I've been mainly sewing, knitting, and crocheting. Sometimes I'll try out some other crafts...

I like to re-use materials from thrift and antique shops or found items. Ideally, I would like try to create projects only made from re-purposed materials, like old jeans and t-shirts. I'd prefer not to waste mostly good quality clothes. Inspired by books such as "Cradle to Cradle" by William McDonough & Michael Braungart, my goal is to craft the reused materials as aesthetically pleasing new creations.

I enjoy the imperfections that arise from the previous life of the fabrics. I aim to try to incorporate and emphasize the wear and tear in the new items created from old jeans, old pants, old shirts. This repurposed item REALLY was used and hopefully loved by someone else…

I have recently discovered reflective yarn, which is an exciting thread to work with! Great for cyclists and joggers for nighttime visibility.
