don't be trashy.

recently i have been trying to do my small part in eliminating waste. 

i reuse old coffee canisters to hold craft supplies. 
i cut up old clothes into strips and crochet them into things.
i bring a reusable bag to the grocery so i won't come home with a dozen plastic bags.

last year i saw this awesome tutorial from etsy on how to turn plastic bags into a fabric that is sew-able. 

check it out:

pretty cool eh?

a few months ago i created this apron using old bags, quilt binding, and buttons of course! 

it's stylish, durable AND waterproof : )

i also crocheted this little purse from kroger bags:
if you use beige colored bags, the end result kind of resembles straw...

get creative with your trash. 
if not for the planet, do it for your wallet.
