Making the most of the your old clothes is easy, especially with our Argos, Hobbycraft and Baker Ross voucher codes, but if you need some tips on where to get started upcycling those old garments then you’ve come to the right place. Think those old pairs of jeans don’t have any life left in them? Think again. Don’t want to throw away that jumper but don’t know quite what to do with it? Don’t worry! Here are a few ideas to give you some inspiration when looking to upcycle your old clothes…
Jeans to Shorts
Got a pair of old jeans that are a bit worn but they fit so perfectly you’re not willing to give them up? Convert them into a pair of frayed shorts. This works particularly well with high-waisted jeans.
Knitwear to Just About Everything with Argos Voucher Codes
Whilst it’s always advisable to have a chunky jumper in your wardrobe because they never really go out of fashion (and even if they do, who cares? They’re still very cosy), if you’ve got one too many, there are several ways you can make use of a spare – convert in a cushion and use chunky buttons as fasteners, convert the bottom half into a mini skirt, or even make a pair of mittens out of it.
If you have the patience, it’s possible to achieve all this with a suitable sewing kit, but if you’re serious about this upcycling lark, perhaps it’s time to invest in a good sewing machine. We have an Argos voucher code that can get you a sewing machine bargain – just head on over to our Argos discount vouchers page and click on the link that gets you up to 50% off selected sports and leisure items. Follow this to the hobbies and crafts page and you’ll find the Singer 1409 Sewing Machine with 25% off (was £179.99, now £134.99) as well as many more sewing machine bargains.
Lace Transformations with Hobbycraft Discounts
Start collecting those lace off cuts because they could come in very handy indeed, whether it’s for adding a lace hem to a plain skirt, or lace side panels into an old T-Shirt. For any specialist sewing kits you might need to jobs such as these, we recommend you take a look at our Hobbycraft voucher codes page – not only will you find out how you can enjoy free delivery on your order with our special Hobbycraft promotional code but you can also pick up a Hemline Hook and Loop Tape Sew in White in their clearance sale (was £2.49, now £2).
Extend the Life of a Long Skirt
Maxi skirts can go in and out of fashion, but if you want to breathe new life into an old one, think about changing it into a slip dress by adding straps.
Have Fabric Paint Fun with Baker Ross Voucher Codes
When upcycling kids’ clothes you can REALLY experiment and there’s no better and easier way to do this than with fabric paints – all you need to transform a plain T-Shirt or dungarees is some fabric paint and a set of stamps or stencils, and you can get both of these with our Baker Ross voucher codes. Save on a 3D Fabric Paint Value Pack (was £11.95, now £9.95) and their Pack of 10 Sealife Stampers (was £3.75, now £3.35) and with our Baker Ross coupon codes, you can also get an additional £5 off your order when you stock up with a minimum £75 spend.
The thought of upcycling your old clothes doesn’t have to be a daunting one, and with our Argos, Hobbycraft and Baker Ross voucher codes, you needn’t worry about the cost either!
