I've been purging out my closet lately to make room for new clothes (and to generally get rid of stuff that I haven't worn for years and probably never will wear again). After awhile, I started feeling wasteful, wondering why I bought all this stuff only to not wear them?? If only I could scold Jen-of-the-past and tell her to stop shopping. Then I decided to check out the internet for ideas to revamp all my stuff. Boy, did I find a lot of stuff...

Now I have a new dilemma: if I save all my to-be-purged clothing for the purpose of making these projects in the future, where will I temporarily stash everything?
Anyway, these aren't actually all the projects I've found. I will share more next time -- involving up-cycling sweaters! You have any other ideas for recycling old clothing that I could use?
