Sewing Green




Look what arrived in yesterday's mail, from Amazon.com!  It is Sewing Green, by Betz White.  It has directions for making things out of repurposed/recycled materials at little cost.  I've heard this called "upcycling" and I like the term.  Betz White appears to specialize in making things out of old sweaters that she felts, but there is more in this book. 

I bought it mainly for this water bottle carrier - something I could actually use!




But these aprons made from men's shirts are cute:





And Miss Main Street might like this big tote bag made from old jeans. 




I think a trip to the local thrift store is in order!
