Zip Bags from Old Ties

Make these DIY necktie zip pouches from old ties. They make great handmade gifts for men, husbands, or anyone else that might like a masculine silk print.

Transform it into gift wrap

Instead of spending money on single-use paper, “wrap” gifts with fabric wrapping techniques. “Fold the fabric over the gift, bring the edges of the fabric together and pull it up. Tie a knot in the fabric tails. So easy! ” 

Turn it into a tote

Stop buying single-use plastic bags (or even paper bags) at the grocery store and make your own eco-friendly bags instead. You can use them as product bags, grocery bags, shoe bags, shopping bags and anywhere you use a traditional cotton bag. 

Headbands from T-Shirts

Simple, elegant and sustainable. This adorable DIY headband has it all! Grab an old t-shirt and start recycling with this infallible handmade fashion craft. 

Table Runner from Jeans

A great way to add color, texture and interest to your dining room or kitchen table is with a rug. Make a recycled denim table runner for the dining table. The rug is ideal against the dark wood of the table and protects it from spills and candle wax.
