It's a bit slow here on the boards so I thought I'd start a new thread.

Post your most interesting recycled or revamped item. Show us a picture if you have one to post of the item. Let's share and learn from each other. Have fun with this one!  Grin

Well it appears things are still a bit slow around here so let me post first. I recently finished a cassette tape and plastic bag purse. It was fun and I guess so far is one of the most interesting things I have recycled into a bag. Here's a picture. Come on you lurkers -- post your creations!!

This is so cool - my house mate found some old cassettes the other day, and I FORBADE her to throw them out - true Craftster style - 'never throw owt out' (may also be a bit of the yorkshire in me too!).

Do you have an idea how many tapes you used??

That is an interesting use of an old cassette tape - did you crochet or knit?

This is crocheted using using one brown cassette tape and some plastic bags. Here is my free pattern link for the project.
