Eco Craft



Previously I had posted about some cushions I had made from my children's pram blanket that they had grown out of. I had some squares left over, which I'd stitched together and they have now been upcycled into a cover for a retro vinyl foot stool I found at a garage sale for $5.00. I've crocheted around the edges and woven in some hat elastic to keep it secure.




 A completed wash cloth, the cotton I used was made from recycled t-shirts.




Previously I posted about this bag I found in a pile of hard rubbish, the lining had perished but the bag and leather handles had charm, so I rescued it from destruction and with a quick cut and sew from a recycled doona cover it now has new lining and a new purpose.



My new knitting bag, cost $0.00, just one hour of my time.
