Five Trashion Fashions that You Can Recreate

tablecloth skirtIf someone else was getting rid of it, and you rescue it and turn it into something beautiful to wear, then that makes it trashion, even if what was being gotten rid of was a gorgeous circular tablecloth, like this one that Wipster turned into a gorgeous circle skirt (with tutorial!).

And just so you know, sheets and dishtowels are also fair game for the eager trashion artist.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.
