 Second hand first - the stories these machines could tell. The tiny machine is over 100 years old. It has survived world wars! I purchased the treadle off a man whose mother owned it. She sewed clothes for her 7 sons on it and was given it by her mother. Buying second hand ties us to the past but also the future. The less we need to produce and consume, the better off we all are! These old machines sew so much better than a modern machine. If you need a sewing machine, go and rescue one of these beauties! #makersforfashrev #fashrev #secondhand #makeandmend
 This is probably my favourite upcycling project. My mums old leather jacket, now a handbag! I've been using it for 2 years and it's still going strong. I'm a huge advocate for upcycling. There is so much waste in the world that I try to minimise my contribution as much as I can. What's your favourite thing to upcycle? #makersforfashrev #fashrev #fashionrevolution #whomademyclothes
 By Hand. It is not hard or expensive to make something with your own hands. All I needed for this hat was one ball of yarn and a pair of needles. So if you care about who made your clothes but feel you couldn't do it yourself, try!! #fashrev #makersforfashrev #whomadeyourclothes #whomademyclothes
 I made my clothes! Not just my hands, but my feet (gotta love treadle power) and my brain (there is a lot more maths in sewing than you'd think). I love being able to create a garment from a square of fabric. The making is satisfying on so many levels. Why do you make your clothes? #makersforfashrev #fashionrevolution #whomademyclothes #imademyclothes #whomademycloth
 I have supported this cause from the beginning. It's so important! Check out @inthefolds for more information. This is the main reason I make my own clothes. No one should have to suffer to make my clothes. I would love @fashionrevolution to also be asking the same questions about fabric production. I do feel like I'm doing some good making my own clothes but I suspect the fabric is produced in equally awful conditions #whomademyclothes #whomadeyourclothes #fashionrevolution #fashrev
