Etsy finds this week

The first two recycled products by Make-Do and Mend, refashioned adult clothing

“I aspire to (hopefully) fashionably reconstructed garments out of outdated but deservingly memorable clothing, and some that was perhaps never so. This age old tradition bore the slogan, "Make-Do and Mend," during the hard times of WWII. And though some of us may not now be feeling the scarcity that such times endured, I believe there is a wonderful opportunity to be creative with the luxury of leftover materials available to us.”

80's Bubble Skirt, Recycled Denim, Size US 8 – USD 56

Log cabin quilted minibag USD 28
(a collection of 8 little quilted box-purses. it was created using the log cabin quilting technique, with a mixture of organic, vintage and reclaimed cotton and silk fabrics)

Or how about a handmade recycled Vintage material wedding dress by amandarosebridal

“I am a textile artist with a love of all things antique and vintage..... I love finding creative ways to reuse material tossed to the side and create beautiful things....
Eco-fabulous is what you will find here in my shop.”

This particular dress in the photos was another of the Dresses featured in the May 'Eco-wedding' issue of Bride and Groom Magazine

Tattered Ranch Beach Wedding Similar dress - USD275
