Use Those Scraps!

Another way to go green is to use all of those fabric scraps you have left over from various projects. I just finished machine quilting a baby quilt made (almost) entirely from fabric scraps. All I need to do is attach the binding and then I am done. I will post pictures (and possibly a tutorial) once I'm entirely finished. But for now, here are some scrap projects that you might want to try. Enjoy!

Some Upcycled Products on Etsy

Here are some awesome itmes that I found while purusing Etsy. Each is made from recycled materials and each one rocks!

1. an Upcycled 'Too cute tealy denim' Waste Wonderful wristlet:

I love this wristlet. It is so original. My fav part about it is that it is probably 100% unique. You could purchase this and know that no one will have one that is exacly the same. Yay for originality!

2. Bon Bon - The Blushing Woodland Squirrel Plush:

This little plush squirrel is just too cute. The rosy cheeks and coy little smile are just adorable. I might just have to buy one for myself.

3. Recycled Wine Bottle Glass -- Four Green Upcycled Wine Bottle Tumblers:

I love wine and anything wine related. These glasses made from wine bottles are really cool. I could imagine using them, along with some colorful, mismatched dinner plates and table linens, for a casual dinner party with friends. What a great idea.

4. Upcycled Tie Onesie:

This baby onesie with a built in tie makes me want to have a baby (almost). This would make the perfect gift for any career minded infant.

Upcycled and Recycled!

Hey Everyone,

Starting today, I am going to be focusing on upcycling and recycling and eco-friendly products. I am going to be featuring cool products and tutorials that I find on the interwebs. If you have any ideas, let me know. Peace!
