It’s been a hot trend in the world of crafts for a few years now, and it seems set to stay that way for many more years to come. Repurposing used materials allows you to recycle those materials while also creating something completely new. Create a new project out of some of the recycled materials by making use of some of the unused craft components you already have.
We have all heard stories of individuals taking quilts that they find dull or unattractive and remaking them with new borders, new blocks, and new overall appearances. It’s possible that you’re one of those individuals that disassembles jewellery that they no longer likes and then repurposes the beads and stones to make new items.
Raise your hands. How many of you have been known to take an old pair of jeans and turn them into a shoulder bag or tote so that you may recycle them? Yes, I’m going to raise my hand as well.
However, let’s take this a step further shall we? How about a denim bunny as a take-home gift for Easter? You may make use of the craft materials that are already in your possession. These yarn scraps, ribbons, and cotton balls, together with some worn out jeans, may be fashioned into bunny magnets or bunny pillows.
I have to confess that this is not something that I have really done before, but I am thinking of doing it. The following is how I would want to give it a try: Create a silhouette of a bunny with an old pair of jeans by cutting out the outline of a rabbit. A little amount of satin stitching will serve to seal the bare edges. Attach a ribbon to the bunny’s neck by either sewing it on or glueing it on. I can see a brilliant pink ribbon in my mind. Attach a googly eye to the head, then use a cotton ball as the tail. In the end, attach a magnet to the rear of the rabbit by glueing it.
Yes, it does seem to be a simple task. And I am certainly guilty of having the misconception that something is simple until I have really attempted it. It’s not uncommon for someone to startle me awake, but I don’t believe it will happen this time. As long as the rabbit is not too big and the magnet is not too little, they should be able to keep the bunny rigid.
It’s also possible to use this as a cushion rabbit. Take one leg off an old pair of pants that are falling apart and cut a bigger rabbit shape out of it. Place the right sides together and stitch, but be sure to leave the bottom open so it may be stuffed. After stuffing with leftover quilt batting, close the opening with stitches. Attach two googly eyes to each side of the bunny’s head using glue, then tie a colourful ribbon around the bunny’s neck. Making a white yarn pompom and glueing it on as a tail is the last step.
Either one of them uses up surplus craft materials, particularly the little bits and pieces that you have no clue why you’re keeping around in the first place. You are up to speed! In addition, you are helping the environment by recycling and reusing materials.
Do you have any further suggestions for reusing, recycling, or recreating something? Bring them to our attention. We would all appreciate it if you could teach us a new technique or two that makes use of the unused craft items.
