At the beginning of the summer, I started to do a purge of my family’s winter wardrobes. Aside from the things my boys have outgrown, it’s a bit sad to see a pile of new-ish things that they wore through and things I no longer use due to moth holes (ugh!) or wear and tear. I’m good about donating gently-used wears, but it’s the pile of potential textile waste that doesn’t sit well with me. Luckily, there are so many great ideas out there on how to up-cycle and refresh pieces so that they can have a second life in your wardrobe and not an untimely end in a dump somewhere. Here’s a few of my favourites.
