Clothes that don’t fit any more, outdated styles that you wouldn’t be caught dead in, worn jeans with holes in the knees or cushion covers with zippers torn – if you are a hoarder of any of these or if you just happen to have them around, you have the makings of a beautiful stole. Uncommon prettiness can be found when mixing and matching simple pieces of fabric. Those inspiration brain cells need a small nudge, is all.
And all the inspiration in the world can be found at maya*made. Maya creates things of beauty from the most simple, every day materials that are a joy to see and read about. She has been a sport and has OK’d sharing some of her creations on Second to None, so here is one of many DIY projects! This is super exciting, actually because I have been a fan!
This she calls the reinvention scarf. It IS a reinvention because the pieces come together to create something that is more than the sum of its parts. Plain fabric, pockets (!) to create a stash pouch, bits of lace, a few buttons maybe…
