Well, how avant garde is TootsUncommon...well, not very. We all know how important it is to not waste stuff...it is a lesson Tootsie Roll's hu"mom" needs to take to heart more often because....well, I am too hasty to throw things away! What is my deal!?
'Repurposing' is close to the heart of many creative people. This means taking an item and giving it a new or different purpose. With clothes this means that instead of throwing an item away because it is worn, out of fashion or simply out of favor, they are turned into something desirable and useful. Almost any type of clothing can be repurposed. The fabric content alone means that clothing can be resewn or used to make quilts or for patchwork projects. However, with a little creativity, clothes can be transformed into practical items or stunning works of art ....Like the Tut The Turtle!
