Why not knit those plastic bags into something useful?


Recycled bag bag


another recycled bag bag


and one more bag from bags


want something from silk/wool but can't afford the yarn? Start shopping at thrift stores and look for sweaters you can recycle!

My mom does quite a bit of recycled knitting from sweaters she finds from the local 2nd hand stores. She's made some beautiful stuff out of them...

Hi Heather, great seeing you here! Do you have any pictures of the stuff your Mom has made? I'd love to see some before and after shots, that would be cool! Maybe the next time she finds a treasure she can do before and after shots :)
