once a month i invite just about everyone & anyone i know, over to my house for not your mama's craft night... instead of your basic sewing or scrap booking, we are trying to venture outside the craft box... share ideas, try some new techniques & hopefully meet a friend or two, in the process. lately, our favorite projects are of the green variety, you know, finding new ways to reduce, reuse & recycle. although most of you probably live to far away to participate in our "not your mama's craft nights", here are some of my favorite green projects, so you can craft along from the comfort of your own home...
freezer paper stencils (make your own stencils for old or new t-shirt, etc.)
t-shirt bags (reuse an old t-shirt & make reusable shopping or grocery bag)
magazine bowls & coasters (reduce your magazine stash! turn an old magazine into a bowl/ plate/ coasters)
fusing plastic (recycle all of those plastic store bags, you know from target, the grocery store, etc., into a reusable shopping or grocery bag, like the one pictured, or a wallet, or a cosmetics bag...)
t-shirt transformations (make a cuter, more fitted shirt, or pants, a bag, or children's clothes. seriously, the possibilities are endless!)
