Recycling Fun!



A recycled photo and a recycled project. Karleen made this adorable bag from a pair of old jeans. Handles of colorful strips of fabric are woven together and tied on the belt tabs. Once stuffed with tissue paper (for bulk) it made a the perfect container for spring flowers and gifts. Isn't it fun to create something new from old? What ideas do you have for crafting pretty things from recycled goods?

  7. In the 1970's I use to make bags out of old jeans. What comes around, goes around. What a clever idea for gift giving and holding flowers.

  8. How cute! I'm going to have to refer my step-mom over here to see this. She's super crafty and can make most anything.
