a busy domestic blog of knitting, sewing and all kinds of needlecrafts, cooking my garden produce and preserving it

Reduce, re-use, recycle.

I'm reducing the pile of stuff labelled 'things that may be useful one day' by re-using the material from old skirts. I'm hoping the larger ones (mine) can be recycled into summer tops and the smaller ones (daughter's) into colourful linings for my funky bag projects.


  1. I'm with you on this one, fabric is too precious to pitch out, those are really pretty shades as well, I just lined a bag I made with a piece of my old blouse,

  2. What a great idea. Look forward to seeing the finished products.
