Early last year I showed you how I organise my refashioning stash. In amongst the clothes waiting to be upcycled, was a bunch of 100% cotton shirts in good condtion. 18 months later and it was time to repurpose those shirts into something new - a shirt quilt.

For my last holiday, I made myself some travel storage bags to help keep my belongings organised for the week. I wanted a low cost solution and came up with a set of six bags made from just two pillowcases - shoe bags, laundry bag, socks bag, lingerie bag and t-shirt bag. Today I'll show you how I made my travel storage bags for absolutely no cost whatsoever.

Adding a zipper pull to a bag takes the finish up a notch or two. Not only does the bag look professionally made, it also allows the zipper to be moved more easily.

Culottes were very fashionable in the 60s. I owned a full length pair, and as with most culottes, they looked like a skirt when viewed from the side. Mine were made from a shiny, pale green fabric and I loved them! Today I am showcasing a free culottes pattern that can be worn below the knee, or lengthened to look like palazzo pants.

If you take jewellery with you when you travel, it's a must to have something to safely hold your precious items when they're not being worn. A drawstring bag, complete with pockets, fits the bill perfectly.

I'm rather pleased with today's project, and it took all of a few minutes to make. I love it when I receive gifts that are personalised with a handmade card, so I thought I'd do the same.

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, why not make yourself an apron that is not only functional, but looks great too. Or whip one up for someone else in your life who loves to cook. The shaped top, wide waistband and pretty ruffles give this apron a vintage flair.
