Sunflowers forever...

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

A few weeks ago, I went for coffee with a co-worker that I didn't really know too well.  I made a comment at one point that I was a bit of a hippie.  He asked me what I meant by that, so I told him that my dream was to make as little wasteful impact on the world as possible.  I want to grow my own food, make my own clothes, and live in a house that I'll (hopefully, one day) build out of re-purposed shipping containers.  

Why am I telling you this?  

Because I am making baby steps towards this goal.  The shirt I am wearing today was handmade... by me!  It actually used to be a dress.  I don't have a picture of it to share, but I made it, wore it once, and then it hung in my closet for 4 years totally untouched, so I figured I'd transform it into something new!  Voila!  Not only did I hand-make part of my outfit... I also re-purposed it!  

Pretty cool, huh? 

What's sustainable about this outfit? 

: the top is handmade and re-purposed
: the bracelets are handmade and fair trade
: the rings are handmade
: the necklace is handmade

Top handmade by me
