"It's All in the Details" - An Upcycling Blog Tour

"It's All in the Details" - An Upcycling Blog Tour

Last year, we had a lot of fun during the Twig + Tale rebranding tour and we would love to continue the fun this year with more tours. Tomorrow, is the first day of our next tour: Upcycling, it is all in the details.

Upcycling is one of the core values of the Twig + Tale brand. Besides decreasing our consumption footprint, upcycling can be incredibly satisfying as a creative challenge - with the details from an original garment inspiring us to make beautiful and unique new garments.

We challenged our bloggers to do exactly that - to make a Twig + Tale pattern of their choice using upcycled materials while retaining some elements of the existing garment. Over the next four days, seventeen bloggers will show off their upcycling skills and hopefully inspire you to do the same.

An example of how upcyling can make your new garment extra special is this Barefoot Romper by tester Lorna!  Those adjustable straps form a lovely example of how details from the original garment can give the new garment extra charm. The Barefoot pattern is still on 25% discount sale with the code "BAREFOOT".

To celebrate the tour we will also have a give away of four Twig and Tale patterns of your choice. Please enter the rafflecopter to have a chance of winning the pattern bundle.

Day one: Sew Shelly Sew - Handmade Boy -Nap time Creations - Boevenbende
Day two: Stylin Stacy - The Craftingfiend - Gaafmachine -While she was sleeping
Day three: Huisje Boompje Boefjes -Life in our busy household - The Crazy Tailor - Sew Sophie Lynn
Day four: Crafty like a Rox - The Wolf and the Tree - NZ Green Buttons -Vera Luna - Paisley Roots

We love upcycling, but haven’t seen much of it here (I’m in sunny California). Thank you so much for all the beautiful inspiration!

Upcycling is great. As a kindergarten teacher we teach the kids to reuse materials all the time!

I love upcycling. I recently scored a beautiful wooden blanket on summer holidays in high 30 temps! That I have earmarked for winter coats for my girls. The shop ladies probably thought I was mad
