What do you do with scraps of fabric too small to sew into anything? Old t-shirts no longer worn? Cassette tapes, now that you have an MP3 player and don't listen to them? They all have potential for weaving!
Here is my new series of guitar straps using recycled materials. Before I could complete the last one, I put the first one up in the Etsy shop and it sold, so I couldn't photograph them as a collection.
This one was made by cutting old t-shirts into strips.
Black Cassette Tape was Woven Alongside the Black Cotton in the Center
Purple Cotton Paired with Recycled Sari Silk Yarn
For more about this yarn, look here.
I also did a similar series several months back for a Recycled art show. You can see them in this post.
And here is my pick of the week for Etsy Treasuries. Just look at all these lovely fibery creations! Such rich colors, too. Fiber Treasury on Etsy.
