I’m very excited to share The Frugal Girl’s fabulous ebook with you, and give away a free copy to one lucky winner. I know this book intimately because I edited it for her, and I came away with some great ideas for new ways to use old clothes. This is perfect for anyone who sews, has children, is frugal, or wants to follow the Compact. There are simple projects that are perfect for kids, like making clothes for dolls and stuffed animals, as well as more complicated projects for those of you who like to sew, like turning a pair of old pants into a skirt. And in addition to giving you ideas for holiday gifts you can make yourself, the book would make a perfect gift for a crafty person. I’ve already given it to two friends myself and they are thrilled with it.
I absolutely love this book and there are at least five projects in here that I want to do with my niece, and I don’t even sew. I think we’ll tackle a headband, a purse out of pant legs, and flowers to decorate both of them. And making a tote bag out of a used T-shirt is a brilliant way to keep your reusable bag collection well-stocked. As always, Kristen shares her ideas and skills in a simple yet creative way that everyone can understand. It’s really inspiring.
If you’d like to win a copy of “Reuse, Refresh, Repurpose” simply leave a comment with your best tip about what to do with old clothes. I’ll pick a winner at random at midnight on Tuesday Dec. 13th. That’s tomorrow night, so leave your comment now! And if you aren’t the lucky winner, visit The Frugal Girl and buy a copy for yourself. It’s only $3.99 and I guarantee you won’t be sorry.
