I took the packaging from my fruit purchases and wove them in to a small tapestry.  I actually prefer the back of the weaving, with all the loose ends sticking out.  I like the concept of taking rubbish and turning it in to something pretty.

Thanks for your comments.  I'm taking it along to an 'off the loom' workshop this weekend, we were asked to bring along a recycled weaving - though I'm not sure what we are going to do with them!  I shall keep you posted!  Cheesy

It is very pretty! You had such a great idea to use recycled materials for a weaving! I am definitely going to try this with my students.

Love it. I think I'll make a 1 strip bag with rug warp and plastic bags as weft. Check out this link:
