Thanks to everyone for participating in yesterday’s giveaway, and congrats to our winner, Jeny! All of you had such fantastic ideas and tips for sewing green. What a resourceful group of sewists! Here’s Jeny’s response:
“I love making things from old felted wool sweaters. I use remnants for projects. I save scraps for projects. And when I recently made the girls some summer outfits, I had pinked the seams and let the edges fall into the trash can. My husband saw piles of pinked seam edges in the trash, and said “You’re not going to throw that away, are you?” I fished them out and tied a group of them onto a hair elastic for a cute hair ornament that the girls loved, and that matched their outfits.”
Today, we have the very helpful and handy Illustrated Guide to Sewing Home Furnishings (Fox Chapel Publishing) to give away to one lucky commenter.
