The pledge

I Bethany Hall pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 2 / 4 / 6 months. I pledge that i shall refashion, renovate, recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium for the term of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovoted, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings! Signed Bethany Hall.

That's right I've joined Wardrobe Refashion! If you haven't heard of it yet it's something I recently found out about and am in love with:
I have taken the pledge for 2 months though I may go longer. :) I decided it's finally time as I went through my mountain of clothing for scrap and there is tooo much good stuff in there to get ignored.
On top of that all my friends keep buying things for me for the fabric. Also I keep saying I'm going to finally make my own clothing. Well this time I'm going to do it. I have too much good fabric and skills to let it go to waste.
I hope you all will enjoy watching my refashions and adventures in upcycling continue! They are going to be multiplying in the near future! I have one item all ready nearly done and can't wait to show you!
