What do you do with 45 women’s socks? Esther and Angela answered that question in their blog Eco-Practical. First Esther cut them up and sewed them into a patchwork as in the photo shown here. Then, both turned the patchwork into a really hip robe. Go here to see the finished robe. It’s a very creative example of recycling. Love it!
Thanks to Allie for emailing about these two. And thanks to Denise from Needlework News at Craft Gossip for forwarding Allie’s email to me.
