Custom Knicker Upcycling Service


Thanks to a lovely comment from Laura @ Glue & Glitter I was inspired to start my own


**Custom Knicker Upcycling Service**


Here's the idea...



If you have:


a favourite dress with a massive stain

a tshirt which doesn't fit anymore

a curtain which is missing it's pair

a charity shop bargain with an amazing print, but no idea what to do with it

or any other piece of much loved fabric lying aroung which no longer has a use... don't throw it away unnecessarily.


Send it to me and I'll give it a new life by transforming it into a custom-made pair of knickers!


Visit my folksy or etsy shops for more details!

Great idea! OOO I really must have some fabric lying around somewhere? Ill have to have a big sort out to see what I have. I know to look out for good fabrics now too! Yay. You can never have too many knickers (especiall when the washing machine eats them!).

Thanks again.

excellent excellent idea!
and i totally have bits of fabric lying around, i'll have a look through and get back to you. the knickers i bought from you are AMAZING, btw. i kind of wish there was a way of showing them off more (just without the need to undress in public, or draw anyone's attention to yr underwear in the first place, haha)

Laura... I can't wait to see what exciting fabric you'll find me! When I get back to England I'll take exact measurements of the pattern I use so that way you'll know how much you need.

Hi Marta...
I'm so glad you like the knickers. Any feed-back on the fit etc would be very helpful. I'll do you some pictures of your knickers, that way you can show people without excessive exposure!
