In honor of earth day I thought I would do some recycling today...recycling of old crafts I have made that is!
Most of these haven’t been featured on my blog but are from my family blog, and are recycled or re-purposing projects. I also just realized that they are ALL sewing projects pretty much. I apologize to you non-sewers. There is a non-sewing project for tomorrow.
Just cut or rip a strip or two. Sew strips together if you have multiple ones. Then ruffle with a gathering stitch and secure with a straight stitch. Easy, easy and pretty for many occasions. This has a double “green” effect. You can re-purpose an old bed sheet AND save paper by reusing this garland instead of using crepe paper which you usually have to throw away after each use.
I love re-purposed crafts. It is like making something from nothing, it is almost free, and you are wasting less. Can’t beat that!
Happy “green” crafting!
