Renew Your Tired Clothes By Embellishing

Tough economic times can be difficult for econistas who like having a couple new outfits each season. A great way to not only live sustainably with a small footprint but also to satisfy the need for new looks, is through updating cloths you already own.

A new book by Kayte Terry of Love Forever blogging fame, can give you the inspiration you need to take that tired sweater and turn it into a funky and unique little number. "Complete Embellishing"is a diy guide that presents easy to follow instruction for various projects that range from creating flowers for a sweater to embellishing a boho chic lampshade. Terry is an artist and stylist who works with companies like Anthropology, Parents Magazine, Adorn magazine, Cutting Edge magazine and Brooks Brothers. Her sensibility is very apparent in the high quality photos of the projects and the taste level of the projects.

Why not sit down at the sewing machine instead of hitting the mall? It will not only save you money, but you can make a creative, one of a kind piece to add to your wardrobe.
