Crafting through my hoard of supplies...

Many of us have been discussing a zero waste lifestyle of sustainable living projects for a swap... but we decided to instead create a craftalong!

Discussion here


Send the organizer your pinterest board link for this craftalong and I will list it here:

PINTEREST BOARDS OF PARTICIPANTS FOR INSPIRATION
Faes board
Acadian driftwoods board
riechans board
audios board
craftADDchicks board

Join us here for monthly projects and themes... ideas for ways to save on reusable crafted items... reduce our waste and carbon footprints... and perhaps a swap in the springtime?  Make a post and share your list of projects you can modify as we go along...

Besides replacing single use items we can also enjoy making and posting projects to use up scraps and create new items by being frugal and using thrifted items or making new life for outgrown or torn clothing...

See each month for new projects and themes...  post your projects and links in your posts to share with the group.  

See list for links to projects:

I'm into it! I actually have about 25 cloth shopping bags just waiting on handles, hopefully I'll get them finished in time for a flea market I have a table at this month. Wish me luck!

Excellent, I'm so glad you started this. maybe could post it lists of things that we want to work on, which could inspire others?

Personally I want to learn how to make beeswax sandwich wraps. And my next quilting project is to use some of the tons of fabric scraps I have.

Maybe we share our links to our pinterest zero waste boards?

So it seemed a lot of craftalongs had projects each month... I have never done one... so I figured start with one... also I moved the discussion thread... link made now in main post

My List

Reusable Clorox Wipes
Crochet Dish Towels
Family Cloth (maybe?)
Dryer Balls

Reusable snack bags



On the not crafty side of things, I bough a silicone baking sheet to replace aluminum foil. Haven't used it yet Though.

I am in! Will share my pinterest board later.
I got some cotton from my mum's attic (the bolt was 500 meters or so) to make reusable fruit and bread bags.
But I am interested to make a kawashi (what's the right term?) spounge thing.
