After months of quiet on this blog, I have finally done some recycling worth talking about. Today my sister and me tackeled a huge pile of fabric scraps.
In a cascading order we first cut the big pieces by hand to make head scarves. Then we took the smaller pieces to cut them into patchwork squares with an Accuquilt cutter. The smallest pieces we sorted into bits for making fabric letters for our baby cloths and T-shirts and padding which we will use to stuff pillows, toys, etc.
This took us all day (mothers' day...), but left us very satisfied with turning potential junk into something beautiful - or at least the raw material for something beautiful.
Stay tuned for pictures of the final items!
