Frogs Gone Wild

Remember this refashion?

Refashioned Black Cable Knit Sweater

I’m a bit ashamed to admit that I cheated on this refashion. I pinned the frogs to the sweater to take the after pic. I kept meaning to sew them on but every time that I sat down with a needle and thread I thought of all the other fabulous things that I wanted to do with these unique frogs and just couldn’t consign them to a lifetime on the front of this sweater. Then it dawned on me! I could sew a couple of brooch pins on the back of each frog and then I could use them on whatever I wanted.

Wanna see how I’m using them now?


giving new life to a too tight sweater


on denim jacket


on a wrap skirt


closing up a too low neckline


fastening a scarf



jazzing up a plain sandal



decorating a velvet headband

Now go sew a brooch pin to something fun.

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
