Overview

Why pay the upscale prices at eco-chic boutiques when you can creatively upcycle? Sandy Stone presents her unique outlook on sewing and decorating: repurpose, reconstruct, and renew. Learn all the techniques and how to find vintage fabrics and furnishings “scavenger style” at thrift stores, then get to work at transforming these treasures with delightfully unexpected projects. Old ties become a sturdy chair back, vintage scarves become luxurious pillows, and a trampoline becomes a chic window treatment. With plenty of inspiration in each eye-popping photograph, Fabric Remix doesn't just instruct stitchers, it upcycles their style.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Green crafting is still popular, but done badly, recycled crafts can look like a mishmash of dated junk. Minneapolis-based upholsterer Stone scours estate sales and antique shops for interesting textiles and furniture, then repurposes it using basic sewing and upholstery techniques. Her approach is accessible, and the projects range from simple pillows to furniture decoupaged with vintage scarves. Stone's projects will inspire thrifty crafters to take a close look at unusual materials that could be repurposed into original, fun housewares.
