Parents often face mountains of clothing that their children have outgrown. Larsson, a Swedish architect, artist, and designer (Instagram’s @go_recreate), provides 30 sewing projects to transform clothing that children from birth to two years have outgrown into rompers, pants, and even accessories such as a changing bag and bibs. With the growing emphasis on recycling and sustainability over the last several years, these are great alternatives for those who want to try their hand at upcycling clothes that would otherwise be donated or collect dust. Each project includes a photo of the finished product, what the original piece was, and instructions on how to turn it into something new. Although the patterns do not require advanced sewing skills to complete, they may be daunting for anyone making their first foray into the sewing world.
VERDICT As recycling and sustainability keep growing in importance, this is a creative way to avoid ditching clothing that readers aren’t ready to give up.
