The color is much brighter than the photo, and I love that! I'm very happy with this purchase. The buttons are sewn on very securely. Thank you! There were no shipping complications, and my order arrived at the expected date.

{ : UpCycled ReCreations : }

Ever since I was old enough to hold a needle I have been sewing craft projects and altering clothing. When I was 15 year old I got my first sewing machine for Christmas and I have been scouring haberdashery stores and op shops ever since for materials for my creations.

Working with preloved and vintage materials has become a passion of mine that manifests itself in my art and channels through my etsy store. My somewhat hippie grass roots have given me a strong respect for mother earth and understanding of the importance of living sustainably. I hence strive to use used materials in my creations as much as possible and enjoy giving unwanted items a new life, recreating their former potential and upcycling them into something new.

I believe there is an immense value in the uniqueness of found materials which gives them potential for originality in the items I create using them. Each of my creations is a unique and one of a kind piece.

    I have been collecting and creating clothing ever since I was little. I suppose fashion design must be in my blood. My mothers tells me I threw tantrums as a small child when she tried to pick out an outfit for me, I insisted on doing it myself.

I am a hoarder beautiful things and I love to give them new life and new homes. As part of my shop motto I strive to create top quality products that incorporate vintage and recycled elements. This stems from my belief in sustainability and a respect for mother earth and her precious resources. I achieve this by upcycling unused clothing in creative ways.

If you have any queries about my work or my shop please do not hesitate to contact me.

After you submit your order click the “Pay Now” button. Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

I post my packages within two days after payment clearance. Please contact me if you are having any payment issues. If I have not received payment and have not heard from you after ten days from the purchase date then I will be forced to cancel your order.
I use recycled packaging to ship all my products. This may include envelopes, padded bags, bubble wrap or boxes, depending on your order. I also take extra care to make sure your package is snug, safe, secure and wrapped in a pretty way :)

I endeavour to have items in the post within two days of payment. Postage and handling within Australia generally only takes a few days.

However please be aware that overseas shipments can be delayed by customs by up to 6 weeks, this does not happen often but that it can happen.

I post by regular post which is generally very reliable but offers no deadline, guarantee, insurance or confirmation. I can however offer these at an additional cost. If you require any of these please contact me at the time of purchase and will provide you with a price.

I aim for maximum customer satisfaction. If you item arrives damaged or not as you expected, please contact me and I will try my best to rectify the situation with either an exchange or refund.
