Etsy Favorites – Upcycled Edition

by inspiredrd on December 9, 2010

I love the idea of taking something old and making it new again.  That was the idea behind my first Etsy shop.  Taking vintage and many times damaged fabric and giving it new life as a pillow, bag or cuff.  Check out some of the beauty I found on Etsy today while searching for “upcycled” items.
