We gave away a copy of Betz White's Sewing Green a few weeks ago (congrats again, Colleen in Missouri) and I couldn't stand not having my own. Well it arrived this week and I love it! As Betz notes in the book, sewers are already great re-purposers, making new things out of old all the time. She includes 25 innovative projects using everything from old cashmere sweaters to mylar juice packs, with instructions and patterns. She definitely has me looking at wool sweaters in a new way. (Must go north and clean out my family's closets!)
Betz also includes features on eco-conscious sewers and designers, as well as vignettes about eco-friendly ideas for sewing and textiles.
My favorite projects are the felted cashmere sweater blanket, the Tyvek shopping bag and the felted foliage scarf. I clearly see some felting in my future!
Pick up a copy of the book from Amazon and enjoy!
