Announcement   Many people get rid of clothing due to style rather than because of wear and tear. So we created Upcycled Designs to give new life to style discards. Upcycling means taking something that originally had a different purpose and making something new and better from it. Pre-worn, recycled, greenwear, it all adds up to be good for the earth and fabulous for fashion.

The possibility for upcycling is endless: dresses, shirts, memory pillows, cinch sacks, placemats, and many more. We hope you enjoy our Etsy shop as much as we've enjoyed creating it.

Love Love Love my skirt! Super comfortable and the fit was spot on... It was just a tad bit to long for my liking but that was easily fixed just by pulling it up higher! It arrived on time as expected just in time for The Force Awakens premier!!

About

Upcycling is good for the earth and fabulous for fashion!

My Dad passed away about 10 years ago. When cleaning out his things, I was struck by what few personal possessions he had. A few golf putting games that my sister and I gave him for father's days gone by, some greeting cards and clothes. That was it. I packed up a bunch of his clothes and brought them home. Over time, I started making memory pillows out of my Dad's clothes tailored to different people in his life. A pillow made out of his ties for my sister. A pillow made out of his casual clothing for my Mom. And, finally a pillow made out of Pittsburgh Steelers t-shirts for his best friend that watch Sunday football with him.

My sewing grew to include making shirts, dresses and skirts, but the upcycling nature remained constant. I gathered materials from thrift stores (I'm now on a first name basis with staff at thrift stores in Pittsburgh) and give my second hand treasures new life in Upcycled Designs. I love what I do and I love when Etsy shoppers share my love for earth friendly creations.

    My crafty husband took an intro to sewing class. He then passed his sewing knowledge along to me, and I haven't been able to stop the sewing bug. I see the world in patchwork and love that Etsy has helped me find others that share my lense.
