Like everyone these days I have jumped on the going green train to a greener and just more individual world! I love making and customising my own clothing and accessories and the good feeling that comes with it of being green and looking fabulous and unique at the same time. The best way to really get that unique and eco look is to go vintage. There is so much you can do with vintage fabrics, not only are you recycling old fabrics to make something new but you are guaranteed not to have the same as every other woman on the high street.

I am always on the look out for vintage fabrics to be creative with, I look anywhere from the high street charity shops and flea markets, as well as from the comfort of my own home at my computer. While searching the internet for new vintage finds I came across Spinster Emporium, an adorable vintage haberdashery online shop crammed full of gorgeous vintage fabrics with cute names such as 'Flower pop', 'Swish swoosh' and 'Pow, bang, pop' they are such fitting names for such funky vintage and retro fabrics.

Spinsters Emporium is all about make do and mend and creating new from old, I love this way of life and became very excited when I saw they sell kits especially for that called Haberdasher Me! You’ve got to love that name! Within in these kits you get vintage fabrics, vintage trimmings and vintage buttons to customise your own clothes with instructions on different techniques. Because they use vintage fabrics in each pack every pack is unique, so that no two are the same, I love it, they are suitable for regular sewers like me but also beginners.

As well as these gorgeous kits Spinsters Emporium also offer Spinsters School of Stitchery where you can go and be taught by the head spinster herself! Not only do you learn new techniques but there are also tips on how to get inspiration from the world around you, and of course a natter with fellow sewers. I know where I will be heading for new techniques and ideas for customising my clothes!

Clothing is not the only way to recycle vintage fabrics, how about simply framing your favourite vintage fabric to create some funky wall art. Or you could even take it a step further and add some embroidery or trimmings to really make it stand out. You could also cover a cushion with your favourite vintage fabric, and if you don't have a piece big enough for a whole cushion maybe go for a patchwork look with several fabrics and finish it off with some vintage buttons. There are so many possibilities! Vintage really is the way to go if you want to be green, unique and just have creative fun!
