Pillowcase into wheat heater

Desperate one cold night in the winter of 2009, I filled a pillowcase with beans and lentils, tied an knot and then heated for a minute in the microwave. Then I put it under my blanket to heat up the bed before bedtime. Perfect.

Reblogged: Earclips into necklace

Spectacular! A perfect use of all my broken ear clips and brooches and other shiny stuff from my grandma and local flea markets.
By readymade.

Pillowcases into baby shirts

This model is so simple to make. And fun. Just take something that fits your baby, put it on a pillowcase (at the edge - shoulders should be where the pillowcase is folded)  and draw a big T around it. Kind of. Make sure you make it big enough though, especially it the fabric is woven and not stitched. Sew the sides, make a hole for the head, trim the edges, button, done. OK, it's a little more complicated than that but not a lot. Cost close to 0, difficulty 5/10.

Shop: Relove

A Swedish online shop for well selected quality vintage. I wouldn't mind this dress by Diane Von Furstenberg, for example.

Skirt into Wallet

A leftover rectangular piece from a vintage skirt. Covered the back with duct tape to make it more resistant to wear and tear. Two zippers, three seams, done. I use it for my foreign money and it works great. Difficulty 3/10, cost very low, result 7/10.

Reblogged: Table cloth into flat pouch

Clara made a teeny tiny table cloth into a very cute pouch for storing little stuff. Two straight seams and a button, as far as I can tell.

Halterneck top into Baby shorts

 Top: H&M, 2007. Never liked it. I cut the top part away and made a tunnel for the elastic. Made the legs by making a U-shaped seam and cutting away the material in between. The hem at the waist is now the cuffs. 
Difficulty: 3/10. Result: 8/10. Cost 0.
