i have spent the last couple months cleaning out my stash of fabrics and yarns. i don't want stuff laying around without a purpose. some of these stashed items might find more potential in others' imaginations, so i'm letting them go.
this state of mind has made my goals for slow fashion october a bit tougher to define. i really don't want to start a project just because it will make a good blog post. at this point i think i will focus on making the wardrobe i already own more lovable…more cherish-able. :)
so…the projects that i am going to focus on will be:
~taking three pieces of clothing currently in my october simple wardrobe…and making them more cherish-able (first one tomorrow!)
~knitting hats and cowls for folks that will appreciate them. i'm hoping to have 10 finished this month.
these projects will help me to appreciate and spend time with items and supplies i already own.
i'm also going to continue to focus on makers being valued and appreciated. i want to know the origins of the items i purchase and wear. i want to consume less and appreciate what i have already.
i'm really enjoying reading about others' slow fashion october as well! thanks for sharing, if that includes you!
