corner view: repurposed



i was wondering if i'd find anything repurposed in my house. i do own lots of vintage things, but none of them are repurposed as such. then i remembered, that a while ago i bought some vintage material - old curtains found on fleamarkets, vintage silk scarves or dresses and skirts - that i turned in to cushion covers. so there you are... these covers here are clearly made from material from the seventies. i've got a stash of material from the fifties and sixties with a completely different colour palette - think deep blues and greens or tomato red, grey and mustardy yellow. i think i'd like to make some cushion covers from those as well. have been thinking about selling them, and at one point even had shops in berlin that took them on commission. still a bit undecided about the whole thing. maybe an online shop at some point? hm.

travel around the world and discover more repurposing via jane's corner view!

Sounds like a great idea! You could try Etsy, but I am not sure if you can sell on Etsy if your are from out of the country.

those are grooooooovy, babes (how's that for very 70's? ;)

if you decide to sell that other gorgeous-sounding (deep greens and blues...) stash of material online, let us know. I, for one, would be interested and etsy is totally international so, that's an option too, of course.

either way, la ninja really likes these.
