Re: How do you use recycling in your sewing?

I make quilts and do a lot of cutting out pieces. When my cutting mats get worn mostly in the middle, I cut them into templates for quilt pieces. I use a pair of heavy kitchen shears. Usually, my husband helps with this as I don't have the hand strenght anymore. I hated to throw away these mats so was very happy when this idea came to me.
