DIY Upcycle Polka Dot Top #thecraftyupcycle

Blog 1/3 from our latest #thecraftyupcycle challenge YouTube video. In this challenge, Hayley was tasked with finding an entire outfit from our local charity shop to transform using our HappyFabric Heat Transfer (iron on) Vinyl and a sewing machine!

In the first part (of three) of the challenge, Hayley goes shopping in The British Red Cross shop in Colchester to find her outfit. Back in the HappyFabric studio, she begins the outfit upcycle by adding polka dots to the mustard yellow top.

Hayley chose HappyFlex Stretch vinyl for this, as the material was fairly stretchy and the vinyl moves well with the fabric.

In the next video, Hayley completely transforms the long coat she bought from the charity shop- this is where the sewing machine comes in. Scroll down or click the links below to see how she gets on!
