Product description

Eco-consciousness has changed the cars we buy, the way we build houses, the food we eat, and now it's becoming a major trend in crafting. In "Sewing Green DIYer" Betz White presents 25 sewing projects for home and family made out of re purposed materials (such as blankets and pillow covers sewn from reclaimed, felted sweaters; lounge pants stitched from retro sheets; a shopping tote made from envelopes), as well as organic new ones (such as baby washcloths made out of organic terrycloth and a lunch tote stitched with organic cotton sateen). She also presents stories about leaders in the worldwide eco-craft movement, lists of green blogs, websites, and craft suppliers, guidelines for effective thrifting and re purposing, and general tips on recycling, reducing, and reusing when sewing.
