How many well-loved shirts or cotton dresses are loitering unworn in your wardrobe? Let them shine again in this crazy-patch quilt upcycled by Chris English, available to make inside Pretty Patches issue 36, out tomorrow!

‘My philosophy is "make, don’t buy". Think about what you have that could be recycled.'  says Chris, 'Lots of my quilts are made from my old shirts and are full of memories of nights out and special days – or a reminder of my fashion disasters! It’s a great way to give the fabric a new lease of life.’
