Re: How do you use recycling in your sewing?

My favourite recycled piece is the Christeneing robe I made for my first nephew. I used the communion dress which had been worn by my three sisters and I! It has now also been worn by 11 babies on their christening day :)
I often use old belts as straps for bags - and reuse pockets from old clothes as bag pockets.
I use old newspapers as pattern paper, as the sheets are a good size.
I keep old curtains - especially the lining and use it for muslins or as a stabilizer. I often dye faded curtains to use again.
My friends & family keep their broken jewellery and the spare buttons from new garments for me to use as embellishments on projects.
