Occasional updates on my projects and other interesting tidbits!

Exploring "up" or "recycling"

I have been exploring recycling (or upcycling) existing materials into new items. For example, I used a toddler size fleece lined vest to make a winter coat for my dog Chester. I've been collecting vintage fabrics and embroideries to recycle them into totes and bags. Any comments or suggestions for interesting recycling projects?
