I always look for easy ways to transform old clothes into new trendy clothes. Refashion and upcycled clothing satisfies my goals and gives me a creative outlet to personalize my classic wardrobe pieces.

When building a basic sewing kit, I recommend purchasing professional grade pieces over poorly constructed items. The durable quality materials are long-lasting and rarely require replacement. 

From a sewing machine to loop turner and fabric scissors, I share the exact supplies I use to execute all my upcycle projects. Check this resource page often to see any updates made to my basic sewing kit!
