Crafting through my hoard of supplies...

« on: June 23, 2019 07:23:08 PM »

Been thinking about going zero waste lately and decided to whip up some produce bags using a thrifted old white queen top sheet.  I used archival ink and stamps to decorate and stamped em handmade with love even tho these are for me haha...

These weren't perfectly measured just cute trimmed sewn by eyeing it up and swinging it...

First 3.. husband says we need t least 10... I have fabric out to make hankies to use instead of tissues.  We already use our own grocery bags.  I have plans to make beeswax wraps too.  I have been crocheting a ton to replace our hand towels for our bathroom... and recently made a reuse recycled oven Mitt set for the hubby. 

How many others are trying to get their zero waste craft on?  I was thinking it's great swap idea!

Inspirational!
I'd want to use something transparent.  Think I'll check out prom dresses at the thrift store...

I am so glad you are being so eco-friendly!  Great job!

We actually did have a swap that was themed like this-it's called the 'Frugal Living Swap' and there were several rounds of it.

Maybe someone will start another round?  Wink
