I love working with re-purposed fabrics. My main material source is second-hand clothing. I try very hard to not purchase new materials including buttons and findings, but I do purchase thread for sewing — so I am very happy to share this article from “Crafting a Green World” a “Natural and Organic Sewing Notions: A Resource Guide“.
I love this comment from the author, “With every dollar you spend, you make a choice.”
So what choices do you make that support a better world?
I sell wool scraps for stuffing – if you would like to give them a try please email me at feltwerker (at) sbcglobal.net. I sell them for $5 a pound plus shipping.
