Upcycled Etsy Sellers and a WINNER!

Before we get started, let's announce the winner of the Silhouette $50 pack.  Our random winner is:

Jillian who said: Please let me win! I pass by so many projects because I don't have the stuff!

Congrats, Jillian!  We'll be in touch.   And everyone else - REMEMBER that the 20% off using the code IAMMOMMA ends Saturday at midnight.  (Sidenote:  I tried the heat press vinyl on a tee and washed it.  It worked well and I'll show it to you next week.)  Now on to today's post.

I love the idea of not only refashioning, but upcycling things.  I think the idea of taking old, worn out things and giving them new life is refreshing and beautiful.  So, I've been hunting around on Etsy the past couple of weeks to create a little round up of sellers that do just that.

Why not do a little handmade, upcycled Christmas shopping this year?  Let's take a little stroll down he aisles of Etsy together.  Here's a few finds worth pointing out.

Upcycled Wool Shoulder Bag with Yellow Bow from Betsy and Bess

Purple Anemone Flower Broach at Felt So Good

Upcycled Tie Wallet from Upcycled and Found

Upcycled Linen awith Jacquard Pillow from Modifyd

Upcycled Skullie Crayons from LovePeaceFamily

Upcycled Tee Clutch from Zoe Klutch

Upcycled Leather Cuff from Coveylee Creations

the Ashley Convertible Recycled Leather Handbag from Recycled Leather Handbags

Recycled Organic Baby Boots from Olive and Fern

Reversible Turquoise and Black Leather Cuff Bracelet from Trilby Made

Lambswool Slippers from Upcycled Sweaters from Wooly Baby

Granny Square Belt from Karen Meyers

Recycled Leather Beansprout Wristlet from Bonspiel Creation

Each of these shops offer a lot of different upcycled items.  Some are pricey, some are really reasonable, but I thought they were all beautiful.  Thanks for shopping with me.  See you tomorrow.
