upcycling is what it is called when you take unused stuff and make it into something new and beautiful/useful right? 

 

for example my sister makes and sells beautiful jewelry out of vintage buttons. 

 

can someone point me to other cool upcycled stuff, maybe with etsy stores?

I think the sweater coats in this etsy store are amazing! All made with old felted wool sweaters.

I've made a few of these hats and she includes a pattern.  They are so cute:
