If you’ve read any of our previous posts on upcycling, you’ll know it’s an amazing way to support ‘slow fashion’ and reduce the amount of harmful textiles that end up in landfill. Instead of buying new clothes, why not repurpose your old ones? It saves you money, it’s good for the environment, and its so much fun!
YouTube is a great way to learn new skills, and there is an abundance of fashion DIY-ers on the video platform. So to help you get inspired for your next upcycling project, we have put together a list of a few our our favourite DIY Superstars.
