Introduction to Wardrobe Refashion (copy)

October 2, 2007

Hello Everyone! My name’s Nicole and I’m currently living in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada). I’m a graphic designer and an avid shopper. But no longer! Last spring I held a clothing swap and contributed 5 large garbage bags full of stuff. I recently realized that after a move this summer that I still haven’t unpacked some clothing. And so enough is enough. I’m not an accomplished sewer (seamstress I suppose would be the real word) and actually I don’t think I’ve done anything with a sewing machine in over 10 years, but I’m up for the challenge. I also taught myself to crochet (me and the internet that is) about 2 years ago and so I expect to finish some projects that I started ages ago and also try and diminish my growing yarn collection. I’ve signed up for 4 months and with all the amazing inspiring creations and refashions I see on this blog, I don’t expect it to be nearly as hard as it’s probably going to be. Guess we’ll see.

Oh, I suppose this part is important- I have a friend who is interested in opening a store (boutique meets co-op) where everything being sold has been created from something already existed. Refashioned bliss! So if anyone is in the Alberta area and possibly interested in being involved, please drop me a line. Or if anyone knows of any shops that already do this, it would greatly help my research.

I’ll be posting other projects of the interior design variety, more in-depth posts on the sewing projects, and links for my “to-do” list as well as various sustainable/green stuff I fall in love with on my blog here. (self-referential link!)

I will end with my first project in the works, I’ve started this and will be posting pics when I have something that looks like something. Happy refashioning!

Nicole

    I read your post on the Wardrobe Refashion blog and thought perhaps I’d posted it in a parallel universe. My name is Nicole. I live in Edmonton. I am not a graphic designer, but your user name, Nic Nac, is the name I put on the crafts I make. (Actually, I use “Nic-Nacs,” so it’s not exactly the same, but you get the picture.)If you are a Scorpio, have an obese cat, and enjoy cheapo wine, I am going to get really freaked out. 🙂
