161  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Old Tshirts=New pillows on: June 14, 2004 04:26:18 PM
I just did the same with a baby T I wore...well, eons ago. It makes a cute decorative pillow (7x10") and was my second sewing project!

Everything that makes up the pillow is completely reused:  an old T-shirt, old embroidery cloth, a piece of canvas from a chair I no longer have, and stuffing from a shabby pillow! I also recently made a set of three pillows from corduroy trousers.
162  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bad Trou=Nice Pillows! on: June 14, 2004 04:17:56 PM
Just started sewing by machine and haven't wanted to cough up big bucks for fabric in case I muck it all up, so I decided to create some pillows for my couch using old corduroy trousers. But the recycling madness doesn't end there! The filling of the pillows is made out of the foam from an old futon mattress and the stuffing from an extremely shabby pillow. Bonus!

The purple pillow is 16x18", the blue 16x16" and the patchwork one is 9x14". Individual photos of the pillows can be found here.
163  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Charitable Sewing Info and Projects at Sewing.org on: June 13, 2004 11:07:15 AM
I just found a great page with information about charitable sewing projects at sewing.org here.

Here's to doing something fun and meaningful! Cheesy
164  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: wine corks on: June 12, 2004 09:32:42 PM
I've made a wine cork trivet (someone bought me a kit a few Christmases ago, though saving up all the corks was the fun part for me!), and we also use champagne corks as towel/apron hooks in our kitchen.

I'm loving the idea of covering a kitchen wall with corks, however. I wonder how well that stands up to temperature changes, the abuse of everyday use?
