About Upcycle My Stuff

I’m Kristen, I run Upcycle My Stuff. For more about me and my story click here.

Upcycling Tutorials & Inspiration

I have a passion for reusing, repurposing and adding value to things that might otherwise end up being thrown away – which is what upcycling is all about.

My current passion is upcycling through sewing & quilting scrap fabric and reclaimed materials but I also love other types of upcycling too and because of that the site is full of upcycled crafts & gift ideas, furniture & decor ideas and of course sewing projects from bags made from upcycled denim jeans to men’s shirts and more.

Support for Small Upcycling Businesses

Because I run two of my own small businesses and I have in the past run on where I upcycled vintage jewellery I want to share what I’ve learned with other small business owners who need a helping hand.

So Upcycle My Stuff has resources for upcycling businesses whether established, brand new or the one you are dreaming about starting but don’t even want to call a ‘business’ yet! 

If you are thinking of starting an small business using upcycled materials as your focus or you have an existing business that needs a refresh take a look at our FREE Upcycling Business Quick Start Guide!
