Another long term recycling project is a table mat I am making out of a machine knitted next jumper which I have been painstakingly pulling apart. So far its going well but I think I will need to finish pulling the whole garment apart before I finish this mammoth of a piece as my dining room table is rather large. I do love the style of the mat so far though - it has a kind of rustic feel and makes me think of all those lovely Laura Ashley interior pieces which I have admired before and then almost given myself a heart attack when glancing at the price tag. This feels so much better and has none of the guilt of buying it especially as If I now see cushion covers or table mats now a days I always wonder how easy it would be to make that myself and how much cheaper to boot.
Will be posting a tutorial for a truly recycled project for your kitchen - the recycled T-shirt potholder. Which is really easy and quick to make. As well as being green and reusing all those t-shirts you no longer like or want. Yay!!!! go green !!!!!!
