From Trash to Treasure My New Pretty

   Great Earth Friendly Craft!

I have so much more respect for hand models now, this was hard, especially with my hands that soooo need a mani!

If you are like me and sew you unavoidable have scrap pieces of material.  Those little scraps that you just can’t think of anything to do with just got a new life.  Don’t throw those tiny little pieces away just yet.  See how easy it is to make this fashion bracelet.

I am guest posting and doing a tutorial on these fun scrappy fabric bracelets over at Sweet November!
Head on over to see how you can up cycle old scraps to make a new pretty.

Here are some more examples of colors and styles you could make.  The choices are truly endless.

These bracelets look great as a set with those scrappy fabric earrings I showed you all how to make.

I know it’s not Earth day anymore.  But we still need to do our part to reduce waist.  This craft is a great start.  Recycling only one day a year, is kind of like dieting only one day a year, (it doesn’t make a difference)so keep those Earth friendly crafts going.
