General ramblings, No Clothes Challenge!

Buy No New Clothes for a Year!

September 1, 2015

Wow!
I had such a fabulously lovely response to yesterday’s post about my new challenge 🙂
Thankyou to everyone who left a comment, or who tweeted, or posted on Facebook-you have all made me smile!

The awesome news is that other people want to join in-yippee!!

Sooooo, I’ve started a Facebook group, where we can all help to support and encourage each other.

You can set your own rules.
Mine are pretty strict and I’m not going to buy any clothes, new or secondhand for the year. I can make new clothes, but I can’t buy new fabric. And I can’t buy new underwear either!

But other people are going to do it buying no brand new clothes, but still buying secondhand ones.
Or no new clothes, but a big fat YES to new underwear. Or new workwear. Or new fabric/yarn for making clothes.

Basically whatever works for you!

The idea is just to be more aware of what we already have. To make better use of what we already have. To push our creative boundaries. To learn new mending and making do skills.
And to have a bit of fun at the same time (I hope!)

Wanna join us?!
