To teach/celebrate EarthDay with my 1st grade students I asked them to collect their used juice pouches. I'm making purses and wallets for them. Here's my first purse--it's too cute! I love the idea of reusing. We always focus on recycling, which is important, but we don't often think about reusing. I'm using the plastic tubs from organic lettuce and produce for storing fabric projects, selvages, thread, etc. It's a great way to organize the sewing room, reuse, and save on storage containers--that leaves more money for quilt shows and fabrics! Happy EarthDay!
