30 simple projects from preloved clothes by Linnea Larsson

Book Description

Transforming pre-loved clothes into stylish, unique garments for your baby or toddler is great for the environment, great for your bank balance and, most of all, great fun.

In Restyle and Restitch for Little Ones, you will find 30 sewing projects for creating stylish baby clothes, from newborns to two year olds, including jeans, dresses, sweaters, mittens, shirts and socks. The projects are accompanied by colourful, full-size patterns to help you make the most of your repurposed clothing. 

You will learn basic textile printing, which will help lift your fabrics from well-loved to wow, as well as useful and innovative ideas for where to find preloved clothing, and what to do if you really can't recycle, by taking a sustainable approach to decluttering your wardrobe.

You will also discover how best to change the size of any of the patterns in the book, to suit your own child's measurements, and how to choose the most appropriate clothing and details to convert, taking into account the young wearer's safety.

The projects are complemented by gorgeous, warm photographs of the author's own children and their friends modelling the restyled outfits, and by Linnea's extra hints and tips for making the most of your well-worn items.
