I recently decided to participate in a challenge by Tricia at Upcycled Stuff.  The challenge combined upcycling and sewing (in honor of sewing month, with is apparently this month!).  You can read a summary of the challenge here, but it basically involved Tricia sending out packets of "garbage" to the participants, who in turn had to create something out of the contents.  And it had to involve sewing.

My packet contained a comic book, some Target bags, and some aluminum flowers!  Yikes!  I made a super fun garland out of my items - Tricia did a write-up here - please check it out!  Also, feel free to follow her blog to see everyone else's entries within the next few weeks.

Here are a couple pictures:

Happy fun colorful garland!


  1. Wow, that's great, love how you incorporated the sewing! What hard items! I can't wait to get my package!
