I enjoy learning and sharing knowledge about handcrafting and sustainable living. I up-cycle materials to promote awareness for recycling . This is my hobby and all proceeds go to pay costs for my recycling and education efforts, plus for foster care and adoption of pets in need of help. Join me or start your own upcycle group in your town to recycle, reuse, re-purpose, and educate others. I also have tutorials showing how to salvage material such as coffee bags, feed bags, then layout, and sew the material into useful items such as carryall shopping market totes and handbags. #sewing #recycle #upcycle #craftsy #totes #shopping #gifts #weavinglooms #fiberarts #tutorials #classes
