Recycled Clothing Quilt-Along
June 25, 2009 § 30 Comments
UPDATE: I’ve created a Flickr group if you want to start sharing what you are recycling.
All cut up and ready to go! The city has been repaving the road in front of our house this morning and we couldn’t leave for a couple of hours. So I set my mind to cutting these shirts apart and getting them ready to go. I even had to get out my dollar granny cheater glasses to be able to see the thread to cut the buttons off of the shirts.
Some of you mentioned an interest in recycling shirts (or other clothing) and making them into a quilt. So… I’m thinking… maybe we could have an informal, low-key, quilt-along during the month of August? Wanna join me and make a quilt from some old clothing? That would give you some time to collect some old shirts or skirts or pants or whatever. And it would give me some time to finish up a few of my many projects.
Think about quilting along with me and I’ll come back to this thought in about a month. Okay? Now, go and enjoy your day! It’s not even noon yet here and I’m already needing another pot of coffee!
