#75: Go Recreate with Linnea Larsson
Linnea Larsson is a multidisciplinary creative from Sweden with a passion for reusing existing materials. An architect by day, Linnea spent the nap times during her maternity leave sewing her own unwanted garments into baby clothes. She also decided to make a book to encourage and guide others to do the same! ‘Restyle & Restitch for little ones’ comes out in English this week, and I got to talk to Linnea all about the process and motivation for writing it.

Originally titled ‘Go Recreate’, the English translation of her book is ‘Restyle & Restitch for little ones, 30 simple projects from preloved clothes’ is published by Search Press and out now.
The shirt and romper image below is a great example of Linnea's visual style.
The Thelma Boilersuit pattern by Merchant & Mills is currently on Linnea’s sewing table.
You can check out my version of The Thelma on my blog.
Ditte @thread.gathering on Instagram made an incredible version of the pattern using an old tent for the fabric!
