Re: How do you use recycling in your sewing?

I have always loved the colors and motifs in men's silk ties. Fortunately several friends gave me old ties which I experimented with, as they do require a bit of TLC. Then a friends' father passed away and I suggested she let me create a memory quilt from his shirts and ties. Since that first quilt project, I have since created pillows, purses and additional memory quilts from recycled ties. It is truly a win-win way to recycle!
