    Di why not!

    So after doing my own recycling of a pair of boots, I thought this could be an idea for a new thread.

    Basically anything you have made/recycled/re-purposed post it up for all to see.

    Here are mine

    As asked in the other thread, any tips/hints would be good to add to each project too.
    I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear.....

    Dye looks very well done.

    Made my own DIY rollercoaster belt for about 35. Beats paying 250 for an Alyx belt with a bit of branded text on it.

    Yeah it’s just a black Dylon leather dye. I bought two bottles and used 1 1/2 but could’ve used the remaining half.

    I cleaned them down and then wiped over with nail varnish remover ( dye says white spirits but didn’t have any) then painted the dye on. Once dried slapped loads of kiwi polish on and buffed.

    Definitely recommend doing it.
