1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Dumpster-diving swap? on: August 23, 2005 02:19:02 PM
I love crafting but don't want to create more stuff out of other stuff that require energy and resources to be produced, when there is so much great stuff being thrown away!  I make most of my crafts out of repurposed clothing or other items found in dumpsters or thrift stores.  I could blather on about the virtues of dumpster-diving, but instead i'd rather see if anyone else would be interested in this swap.  It could be so much fun!

I used the back stitch mostly, plus french knots and i don't know what it's called but i kind of wove the threads on the mouth piece of the gas mask.  So here it is...
