Just a few scraps and clothing-What's Possible

This fun bag was made with reuse in mind. I had a bunch of medium sized chunks of various fabrics from a quilt I'd made reusing clothing and this bag wanted to take the stage just as well!

I made the hexagon flower for the center, the broken petals around the hexagon are vintage hand pieced parts of a Wedding Ring pieces. The yellow bottom is a small piece from a jacket, quite tough and sturdy. Its about realizing the value of recycled clothing in quilts.

 This little quilt is almost entirely reused cotton from dresses and shirts. I donated this to a good cause for an auction. It sold!

This quilt is an wool/fortrel table runner. Hand quilted. I called it Poppy Lane.

This quilt has become my car quilt, for when its cold outside like today, I'll put it over my knees while the car gets warm as we travel into town. Its made from recycled blue jeans and corduroy, the biege is denim also and the butterflies are recycled cotton from shirts.

I made a decision to not buy any more fabric this year. Its my resolution and I aim to keep it.
Thanks for reading and dropping by, take care, 


  1. Hi, Carli. Well, of course you know that I would enjoy this post as you're recycling fabric. Great projects! I'm especially partial to your purse. I've had purse design on my mind a lot lately.
