I wanted something new to wear to an event, so I took a trip to our local thrift shop and found a beautiful fuchsia designer woven silk swing coat. But what to wear it with it?

Linda H. has found a use for scraps and embroidery testings….putting them on pre-stretched art canvas, finishing the back, and hanging them on the wall in her sewing room. We think they look great!

Hey everyone! I want to share with you the way I disassemble a shirt into working yardage. I use this all the time to get material from the clothes I get from myself or from Goodwill.

Gone are my days of wearing an itty bitty teeny tiny yellow polka dot bikini – yet summer has arrived and the beach calls my name. But who really wants to shop for a new bathing suit? Today I’m going to share a quick and easy teekini tankini bikini (say that 10x fast!) that can be made with materials you already have on hand – two t-shirts, a pair of scissors, elastic, and a needle with thread.

Don’t you love this basket? Look closely; can you tell what it’s made of? Barb Lake, BERNINA at Fancyworks, Marissa, IL, recycled packing paper and stitched up a sturdy basket to use for displays. She told me, “I just couldn’t send all that good paper into the recycling bin!”

A WeAllSew reader recently recycled a pair of shorts she “undergrew” (this is the opposite of “outgrew”). She lost weight and took a pair of her old shorts and made a small purse to accommodate her cell phone, keys, and wallet.
