Wow Some People Really Know How to Recycle!

4 Aug

When I was a kid we didn’t think of it as recycling, it was more using what you had.  Mom would save her fabric scraps and I learned how to sew.  The comics from the newspaper made great gift wrap.  Boxes became homes for our dolls or covered with fabric to store things in our room.  We were encouraged to be crafty.  Today I found a website that has the winning designs for uses of carpet samples, it’s call Ample SampleSome are simple, some are complex, but they are all worth a look.  I like the pet bed, and they included the instructions.

    What a great idea! How do people think of these things? Yesterday, I met a lady who made a vest out of Capri Suns! Seriously!
