Often times I go through my clothes to see what fits, what needs to be "retired," etc. If you can't refashion your wardrobe like Becky shared yesterday, there are even more options!

In fact, there are lots of beginner sewing and mending projects that require a lot less skill than you might think! Taking in a too-big tank top is one of these

You know we love vintage fabrics around here. Second hand supplies make it easy as pie to be eco-friendly. Sure, they may have had a sizable footprint when they were created, but by crafting with gently used vintage fabrics, you're giving that fabric a new life and diverting the waste from the landfill
