what to do with old bras
I have a dozen bras that I do not wear, I wore 3 of them reularly, 9 I wore maybe twice. I would like to make some use of them. Any suggestions ? some are sexy cute, others beige or black and boring.
Make purses out of them.
One of my favorite Etsy shops: http://www.etsy.com/shop/SassysWackdOutGifts?section_id=6402674
should give you some inspiration!
If they are wired bras I remove the wire and i find the wire makes a good solid base for making dream catchers xx
I love this idea, Guess who will be making some of these now!!! And I have loads of bras.
And being a big girl, mine will be more like tote bags than delicate clutch bags, but hey, will have a go.
Thanks for the idea :0)
always wondered what to do with my old ones
this will sound weird but I have horses and used one on the horse. She cut her eye on a branch & it needed to be covered. I cut the other cup off & used the straps to hold it on the halter. Everone got a kick out of it but now my vet repeats this for eye injuries, LOL
oh make sure it is wireless. Not what you expected right
I keep the metal strap bits to make future bras from.
Debby, what a brilliant idea!!!!!!
Trying to source bra notions can be frustrating so I reuse parts of them to sew new bras. Because the notions are a complete set, my bras look every well thought out.
Use the straps and decorations to make headbands.
For any bras you cant craft or upcycle - have a look at these links, they're charities that ask for second hand bras:
