About us

Our names are Sandra (Orlo Subito) and Lisa (Cucicucicoo). We’ve both relocated to Italy from the Americas and are passionate about sewing and upcycling materials. We create objects and clothing from discarded, new or second hand fabric and materials, giving them a new lease on life in new shapes and forms.

We publish sewing and crafting tutorials on our websites. Sandra holds refashioning and upcycling workshops and Lisa designs eco-friendly sewing patterns for products that replace disposable items or that can be made with upcycled fabric.

You can find us on the blog OrloSubito and on the website Cucicucicoo, as well as our social media profiles.

What we will do

How many t-shirts do you have in the back of your closet?! Even if they’re old, stained, unfashionable or torn, their useful lives are not over!

Together for the first time, Orlo Subito and Cucicucicooo will show you how many things you can make from t-shirts. Your donation will help us finance our stand at the Kreativ fair in Bolzano from September 18 to 20, 2015, as well as the other expenses stemming from this event.We gave t-shirts the leading role of the fair because it’s a very versatile material with which you can create loads of items and, because the edges don’t fray, there’s no need to finish off the edges. It’s also a garment that pretty much everyone has hanging around the house somewhere!

​At the fair we will offer

1. Free refashion advice (all day):
Bring your garment (any type) that needs some love and attention, and together we’ll brainstorm different appropriate possibilities to renew or transform it.

2. Ongoing workshop:
Bring your t-shirt and we’ll show you how many things we can make with used t-shirts:
• Decorate them with various techniques: stamps, stencil, reverse appliqué, lace/scraps, appliqué, doilies, knotting
• Shopping bag
• T-shirt yarn to create necklaces, bracelets, belts, baskets, kitchen hot pad and rugs with various techniques (knots, braids, knitting, crochet)
• Infinity scarf

3. Paper sewing pattern with Cucicucicoo workshop: with an upcycled bedsheet
• Pajama pants from a sheet
• Ghost costume from a white sheet

4. Kit plus OrloSubito workshop:
• Change purse
• Bag organizer
