One of the things I really enjoy doing is using old things that I have and making them into something new. My mum and I have a lot of sari’s so whilst we were having a bit of a clear out I kept hold of a few for some craft projects. I wanted to show you just some of the things you could make from an old sari that you still love.
A sari is basically 8 metres of fabric. So with the beautiful colours and designs on a sari there are tons of things you could make…….the options are endless.
Here is an old picture of me from when I was younger wearing one of my favourite sari’s.
I loved this sari and wore it for years. I didn’t want to throw the sari away so here are a few things I have made from it’s material:
Firstly, I just loved the pallu (the end of the sari full of design and colour that is worn at the front). It is a Rajasthani elephant design in colours of crimson and caramel.
I used the pallu to make a scarf:
I also used some of the main section of the sari to make this kimono style top:
I still have plenty of material left to use on another project.
So before you throw away your sari have a think about what you might be able to use it for 🙂
