Many of these happened to be made with upcycled fabrics. Taking an old garment and transforming it into something new really is the best way to save money. Upcycling is the easiest way for me to save on fabrics, but I have many other ways to save on patterns and supplies as well.

Have you made anything for less than $1 (or your country’s equivalent?)

  1. Great ideas! My best friend cleaned out her closest and brought me a trash bag full of knit tops (high quality ones) so I could upcycle for my kids. My husband found it in the garage and took it to the dump. It was hearbreaking!!

  2. I’m definitely saving this article! I love to sew for my baby and I usually use upcycled adult clothes to do it, so it’s basically free. Lately I’ve made baby shoes, a baby tee, and pjs from upcycled adult clothes. I love that you’re doing the same thing! I hope to make some upcycled swim shorts soon as well.
