Renew Earth SweatShop

Raeann Heng

There's an event happening at Temasek Shophouse right now, and if you aren't aware of it, it's the Renew Earth Sweatshop!

Renew Earth Sweatshop

The event has been extended to 31st Oct 2021.

Live at Temasek Shophouse!

I first joined the event in july as I wanted to meet like-minded creators who love to sew in the name of sustainability. Then they told me about the showcase and I was more than interested create some pieces for!

Upcycling and patchworking is definitely my jam. It is always fun to challenge myself to transform old and unwanted materials into something new and usable. 

Here are some of my creations available at the showcase: 

Patchwork dress

 

First to be made was this patchwork dress. I dug through the donated fabrics at the sweatshop space and found some colorful gingham patches.

Crinkled Cotton upcycled dress

Second to be made was this crinkled cotton kids dress. Seems to me it was an old large sheet of fabric. The texture was quite interesting. Its light and flowy, a good material for a dress.

The third was actually a matching set of cedar shirt for mum and bub. There was a huge amount of blue linen being donated, it was possibly an old table cloth.

Lastly, with the remaining fabric I found from the space, I made this reversible patch work tunic. I chose the colors so it would have a paddle-pop feel. I love the colors!

The event also had a heat press session at one point, and I designed and made this, press on a scrap piece of white linen:

It was turned into a zipper pouch!
