5 Recycled Sewing Projects to Make this Earth Day
Reuse and repurpose used items into new recycled sewing projects with these 5 ideas for Earth Day!
Take an existing sweater that has seen better days and cut out a swatch to embroider. Make a cute pincushion by adding stuffing and inserting it into a little basket or small jar. This recycled sewing project makes a great gift!
Cut up jeans of all sizes that are too small, stained or otherwise unwearable and use the scraps to make a cool pillow. This recycled sewing project and more are included with our Upcycling Denim on-demand course!3. Artful patches

4. T-shirt Bags
Turn your old T-shirts into reusable grocery totes! Add embroidery for a little more fun to make these recycled sewing projects even cuter. Use a serger for the construction to make the work that much quicker. This is a great project for kids, too, as there are minimal seams and they can have fun practicing the cutting.
5. Reimagine Thrift-Store Finds
A plain skirt can have so much personality with the addition of decorative stitches. Shop the thrift stores for things that fit, and style them later with stitches and a little love.
