I won second place in the PatternReview.com 2018 Upcycle Contest for my Hudson’s Bay knock-off coat! Woot!
I am pretty amazed. This was not the most creative upcycle, but it was pretty striking graphically, I guess. Or maybe my funny story about it charmed everyone.
Here’s another funny thing. When I mentioned to my mom that I entered this contest, she said she remembered the blanket from my college days. A few days later, this picture arrived in the mail.
Yep there I am, and there the blanket is, looking very 1990 or so.
Remember how cameras back then gave you red eyes? Lovely!
I can’t believe how bad those bangs look. I must have cut them myself.
Also, I am wearing a black Swatch, an oversized sweatshirt and faded mom jeans. Sexy!
I cropped pictures of the other dorm-mates out, since I can’t remember their names. So sad! It was only 30 years ago…
But I have a cute coat!
