Its time to Vote for our Reusing/Recycling/Recrafting Challenge #1. This poll will run for 2 weeks from today. As soon as it closes, let the crafting begin!

edit: I am looking for a great upcycle/crafting book to offer as the prize. I'd like to have an option between 4 or 5 books so the winner could choose what would be the most fun for them. Any suggestions?

Here's 10 ideas!
1) Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt
2) Sewing Green: 25 Projects Made with Repurposed and Organic Materials
3) The Sweater Chop Shop: Sewing One-of-a-Kind Creations from Recycled Sweaters (and a few other sweater/reconstructed wool books)
4) Subversive Seamster: Transform Thrift Store Threads into Street Couture
5) Born Again Vintage: 25 Ways to Deconstruct, Reinvent, and Recycle your Wardrobe

I own the first 2. #1 is a classic, and #2 is a really nice book. I've checked out #3-5, and they all look good. The rest I just found off Amazon recommendations while I was looking up the full titles for the other ones, but I personally (at least), would love to own them!

I just borrowed CraftCycle (by Heidi Boyd) from the library and I don't want to give it back.  It has a nice variety of projects from quick-to-make to more elaborate, time consuming stuff.
