I could easily say that my favorite thing about the things that I create, is that that are made from recycled materials. I love the idea of renewing out-of-date, or unused materials.
As for the clothes, each item is re-created from something else. I take unwanted garments from second hand stores, garage sales, etc, and turn them in to something more updated and fun. I find so many gorgeous patterns and prints and fabrics that are ready for a new life, and I adore giving that to them.
All of my bags and purses are made the same way, from recycled materials. I rarely buy any new fabric. I stick to the idea of re-imagining the items and materials that have been forgotten about or tossed away.
