I'm in here.... [i love you World Sweet World]


with this project...

Picnic rug from recycled bandanas, cultery roll from recycled teatowel and a bag for it all out of, yes you guessed it... two more teatowels! Get your copy here. Remember it's in NZ dollars, which is always less than the rest of the world!!

I'm so excited. Actually I have a spare copy, leave a comment and I'll draw a name out to give one away. And just because, suggest a recycled project that we could make (you don't have to have made it, just an idea!!)

  1. I love the idea of recycling and reusing items. I've saved the caps from medicine bottles and basting spray to make cupcake pincushions.

  2. I bought World Sweet World yesterday in Whitcoulls, I'd never heard of it before but I'm totally sold already! Definitely going to subscribe :) I had a little "OH!" moment when I turned the page and there you were. Congratulations, it's a great little tutorial.

  4. Congratulations Deb on making it to this great little magazine. Love your new Christmassy Banner too! YOu don't have to include me in your giveaway as I can easily buy this mag. The only recycling idea I can think of is I like to recover cardboard cans ( like the ones ovaltine comes in) using pretty scrapbooking paper. I have one on my computer desk thaat holds my pens.

  6. My recycling is usually using scraps & odd sizes of fabric to cut up into scrap quilts.

    I love seeing the pics of Annie-Rose. She is growing so fast. They just don't stay babies long enough.

  7. I love taking thrift store napkins and making bread and produce bags out of them. They're already cut to size so they make a great quick project.

    That magazine looks awesome!

    I like to use old adult clothing to make clothing for my kids - one advantage of toddlers being so small =)

  10. The WSW mag is definitely very interesting!! Congrats on your published work in it and thanks for sharing it.

    Recently, i've started looking at those extra small shirts from my daughters days of being 4 and 5 year old--the soccer team shirts, trips to the zoo, the shirts grandparents collected for her on their travels...there has got to be a super easy way to turn those into reusable produce bags or as little totes for trips you never seem to carry a bag to (pharmacy, notions store, thrift shop)?!
