Deja New

Green Idea: Keeping memories alive of a special occasion or a cherished person can be a part of your everyday by re-using pieces of clothing and turning them into a home piece such as this pillow made from a shirt or by adding embellishments such as this vintage brooch. Simply evaluate the clothing item to determine how much fabric you have to work with and where you would want to use it. Shirts are the greatest--you can turn grandma's favorite shirt into an apron, for instance. With a little creative imagination you can transform your treasures into something that can be with you in a very useful way every day.
