Making stuff out of older stuff

June 23, 2007

Five and a half has a great (and easy!) tutorial that shows you how to make a gorgeous notebook out of paper and glue.

Somewhere else on Craftster, jamiewatchthestars posts up a step-by-step tutorial on fusing plastic bags together to make a large piece of fabric. Totally rad.

But what would you make with a piece of plastic fabric? How about a makeup bag, a messenger bag, or even a dress?

Via Whipup, quilter Magpie and Cake has sewn a quilt using Starbuck’s coffee sleeves for material.

Here’s another old video by Threadbanger that shows how to make a bag from tshirts. Even if you’re just a novice sewer or worse, can’t tell the difference between a thimble and a bobbin case, I would vouch for this bag pattern because making bags like this is really really easypeasy. Crafter’s promise!
