I enjoy the creative challenge of repurposing items. It’s exciting to take something that is unusable or boring and turn it into something new and beautiful. Today I’m inspired by all these more repurposed clothing projects using skirts, pants and jeans. These projects are earth-friendly, creative, frugal and make wonderful gifts. I can’t wait to get started repurposing clothing.

Earlier this week I shared more than 20 repurposed clothing projects using t-shirts and sweaters. Take a minute and look through the closets in your home for clothing that isn’t working for you and are the perfect candidate for repurposing. If you’re super organized and have already purged your clothes so that all you have in your closets are items that you use, don’t worry. You can easily go thrift store shopping to find items to repurpose.  In the past I’ve shared 3 reasons to shop at thrift stores and not feel guilty that may help you find items to repurpose.
