Book Description

1 April 2009
Eco-consciousness has changed the cars we buy, the way we build houses, the food we eat, and now it's becoming a major trend in crafting. In "Sewing Green DIYer" Betz White presents 25 sewing projects for home and family made out of re purposed materials (such as blankets and pillow covers sewn from reclaimed, felted sweaters; lounge pants stitched from retro sheets; a shopping tote made from envelopes), as well as organic new ones (such as baby washcloths made out of organic terrycloth and a lunch tote stitched with organic cotton sateen). She also presents stories about leaders in the worldwide eco-craft movement, lists of green blogs, websites, and craft suppliers, guidelines for effective thrifting and re purposing, and general tips on recycling, reducing, and reusing when sewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring. 3 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
This is the book to get you sewing.It is written in a very user friendly fashion, all the projects are possible and the articles about eco-conciousness are inspiring.There is a pattern sheet tucked into the back of the book, which is a great help to beginners like me. Most of the sewing is done with up-cycled materials, with loads of information on how to do it. I have enjoyed converting old tableclothes, pillowcases and sweaters into funky, very wearable clothes, each one unique.In this world of mass production, Sewing Green offers a real alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Betz does it again! 2 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
A fantastic book from Betz White. Full of inspirational and original ideas., much like her other book, Felt So Good (Warm Fuzzies in the US).
The focus of this book is on recycled and organic materials, which is appealing and follows a conciousness that it already being shown in the craft community. I love this book. Gorgeous photos and great ideas.
