Up-cycle Week

This week I am focusing on up-cycle projects.  

Up-cycle (according to Oxford Dictionary) is "Reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original"

I tend to look at an item and immediately think of how to recycle it.  I am trying to think more like Issey Miyake's quote (above.)

I have a stack of items set aside for up-cycling projects.  But first I have to focus on a use.  I not, my fabric hoarding will get out of control.

This week I have a goal of completing 4 up-cycling projects.  Stay tuned to see what I come up with.
