Repurpose clothing

This weekend I will once again tackle the laundry, craft room which has become the collect-all.  Potatoes need to go into a better form of storage other than a bucket in the floor. This room also holds a pile of clothes that were gifted to me by someone who has a different body shape than I, meaning I cannot wear these clothes.  This pile is viewed as gifted crafting materials;  Ronnie has a different name for it.  *clears throat*

When thinking of what new items could be created from these various pieces, I found these sites:

Am I crazy?  It is not like I have a slew of time to sew and when there is spare time, knitting is what is picked up.  The more I think about it, and Phelan’s post about hording vs prepping.  Torn, I am, on if this is considered hording or saving for a day when I will have more time to craft.  Clutter does pull down the energy so am I just crazy?  

Your thoughts?
