Happy Earth Day!
I’ll admit it… I’m a pretty crunchy mama. This is probably not surprising to you if you hang around my blog enough ;) I don’t like to be wasteful, and I don’t like to throw my money away on things that I’m just going to throw away. That is one of the things I love about sewing – using the resources around me and doing my best not to add more waste to the world. So I’m a fan of Earth Day, celebrating how we can be kind to our Earth and our future generations.
So I thought I’d highlight five of my favorite Earth-friendly sewing projects… a little upcycling, a little re-using… just what the Earth and I both love. ;)
Sew your baby some prefold cloth diapers
Re-size a men’s button-up shirt for a kid
Sew a simple tote bag that you can re-use over and over
Sew reusable baby wipes and burp cloths (or just wipes for kids who make messes of all.the.things)
Sew a skirt from a vintage sheet (and add some doily pockets!)
Happy Earth-friendly sewing, friends!
