The best thing that can be done from old things
That the house does not turn into a landfill nobodynecessary things, you need to get rid of them in time. A natural question arises: where to surrender the old things? But even if we knew the answer to this question, sometimes it's just too lazy to go somewhere, to drag behind ourselves second-hand goods ... Do you know what? You can make old things functionally new, and they will serve you for a long time. You just need to approach the process creatively, to see the potential of an obsolete scagar.
For example, on the shelf in the closet you found a sat down,worn, all in spools, a sweater ... The most simple thing that you can make from it is a small pillow. Cut off the sleeves and the neck. From the wrong side sew a hem, insert a pillow, mark the place of cut with the allowance on the seams. Scissor along the planned line and, at last, finish the work with the last seam.
And if you complicate the task and do not sew up the resulting knitted bag, and attach the fasteners, you will get a cover for the laptop:
This is the easiest thing to do from old things. And how do you get the idea to update the upholstery of the chairs? It will take man's strength and skill.
To start, you need to unscrew the seat, pull the canvas from the worn pullover and nail it with a furniture stapler on the back:
At the same time, while the upholstery works are being carried out, it would be good to repaint the "skeleton" of the chair.
Yes there is a chair! A kitchen lampshade covered with a sweater is an exclusive design thing, for which many could lay out a tidy sum:
And from sleeves are obtained excellent cases for bottles and pots. Such an unobtrusive stroke will complement and harmoniously combine the space of the room.
Just do not even think of throwing off trimming sweaters! Cut them into shreds and stitch together as you accumulate. You will get a warm blanket, which will warm you up more than once.
Or use another idea of what you can domake of old things: you need to cut the flaps in long strips, stitching them one by one and rolling in a tangle. When you have enough quantity, twist them like on a loom, and you will get a rug:
A sweater is also a good base for a bag.
Cut off all that is superfluous, as shown in the photo:
You should get the workpiece:
Sew the bottom of the bag from the wrong side. Along the entire perimeter of the handles of the future bag, double the cloth by 1 cm, sweeping the bend. Stitch it, and after that you can use a new bag.
When treating rubbed in many placesjeans often raise the question of what can be done from old things. And if from a fabric sewn bags, skirts, waistcoats, lateral thick seams usually interest nobody. But in vain. Lubricate the seam with a glue on one side and fold it with a "snail".
The result is a stand. It will not allow hot dishes to spoil expensive furniture.
The second life of the old thing is not just an update.
