Upcycle Christmas!

Posted: October 26th, 2009 | Author: ktcita | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , | No Comments »

I am taking part in Folksy’s Upcycle Christmas project which will raise money for Sue Ryder Care, a charity devoted to helping those with end-of-life or long-term care needs. The project involves 200 participants who will find something from the Sue Ryder charity stores and ‘upcycle’ it into something new which can be sold at auction. All proceeds will go to Sue Ryder Care.

Today I visited my local Sue Ryder store and bought a fabulous 80s tartan jacket from Jaeger. It is 100% wool and feels lovely on the skin. Think it will become a more cropped jacket. Something with some lovely draping. Stay tuned for updates.
