Upcycling and redesigning are passions for Kelly Nagel. She has been sewing and upcycling for almost 40 years and in that time she has created lots of fun projects and upcycling techniques. Kelly says "For as long as denim has been around" we have found ways to reuse it and upcycle it! Denim is such a great fabric for so many things, and I especially love it when it has been 'worn-in'. That is when denim has the most character. It can, however, be tricky to work with because of the thickness and the stretch. In this class "I will show you how to use both of those properties to your advantage!"
