Today, I've been having a bit of eco-fun. We all have unwanted or unworn clothes in our wardrobes and due to the lack of space in my studio/room I thought I'd make some use out of the extra clothes taking up space.

I started with two tops, cutting the pink vest into strips for creating a cotton jersey yarn suitable for knitting on a larger gauge. The other part of the white tshirt will take a bit longer to finish because I have cast on through the material ready for knitting. With the remainder of both tops, I simply stitched them together to create a two toned vest and managed to knit up a matching bracelet from the jersey yarn. Here's a closer look:

By the end of the week, I may have upcycled most of my clothes.
