You’ve heard the term recycle but what about upcycle? Upcyling is taking something you would throw away or something you don’t like and making it into something new and wonderful! Barb loves looking for old treasures like men’s jackets and ties, which have been staples in her bag of tricks. And now she is using skirts, curtains, antique quilt squares, leather belts and even feed bags to create upcycled bags. She will share her best loved techniques for working with these items to turn them into bags you will love! As a bonus you will receive a free pattern for an easy upcycled shopping bag to get you started on your creative journey. In Lakeland, this class will be taught by Pattie Otto.
