upcycling clothes

I’m not as nimble as I’d like to be with a needle and thread, and don’t know my way around a sewing machine that well, but I’m really into upcycling clothes.  Last year I shared with you five no-sew clothing DIYs.  That post went down so well, that as I was researching more ideas for upcycling clothes with no-sew techniques, I thought why keep them to myself?  So today I’m here to share with you five more great no-sew tutorials that I found around the internet.  Click on the links to be taken to the full tutorials:

Kate at See Kate Sew stamped this cute cat t-shirt using potatoes!  Upcycling clothes with potato prints must surely be the ultimate easy way to update your wardrobe!

It turns out there are lots of crafty Kate’s out there: this no-sew diy lace insert top is by Kate of Mr Kate!

no sew flower embellishment

This embellished flower DIY from Lily Shop is for kids clothes, but would look beautiful on an adult’s cardigan too.

This ombre t-shirt from I Spy DIY looks stunning.

The thing I love best about no-sew DIYs is that they are such an effective and relatively simple way to breathe new life into old clothes, without too much technical knowledge or professional skill.  Don’t get me wrong, I love looking at crafty DIYs on Pinterest, but the no-sew ideas always seem the most relatable to me!

Will you be upcycling clothes using any of these techniques?  Do share how you get on!
