My favorite is the pink fair isle (639)- it would make such cute longies for my little ones. I rarely find girly colors at my local thrift store...

Ryan said...

...and I follow your blog via google reader.

Something green and new-to-me: I'm making reusable produce bags today to use instead of those plastic ones that stores have.

Celeste said...

I like the Soft yellow merino blend froggable sweater (674). I think I'd need to add a zipper and some cute flowers on the pockets.

I got a t shirt out of the goodwill bin to make a skirt. Why have I not done this before?!?! So cute.

To do something else for Earth Day (and to reciprocate for when you featured me!), I'd like to include your shop and blog in a newsletter I'm doing to encourage others to use pre-owned clothes.

Would it be accurate to say that many of your sweaters would be fine to wear just as they are, without upcycling?

I am always checking out the local thrift stores for great sweaters to frog or wear myself. Cotton sweaters are wonderful to frog for dishcloths, coasters, hot pads and bath mats.

I'd love a pretty orange, I can never find one at the thrift stores, just rusty colored ones. Thank for being here.

Something new and green I've done.... Thanks to you! Last night I made a pair of pants for my little guy out of a sweater that I picked up at our local thrift store yesterday.

Amy said...

We planted a tree for Earth Day! We have never done that!

annemarie said...

I am going to get out some cloth napkins I have in my linen closet - time to start using them and get rid of the paper. What am I saving them for??

Jean Marie said...

Thank you so much for your generosity! I am a girly-girl (much to my macho husband's chagrin), and my favorites are # 508 and 669. May Jesus repay your kindnesses!

Jean Marie said...

I have been following your blog for a few months now, and have learned a lot. Thank you for your teaching us! My email is yellowdaisyfriend@yahoo.com

For a green idea, I got a blouse and skirt set from the thrift store, thinking the fabric was so pretty, even though the style was not. I ended up deciding to make a travel set with them. I made a drawstring laundry bag by sewing up the bottom of the skirt, and making 2 slits in the outer side of the waistband, on either side of the zipper, and threading a drawstring through it. Then I cut up the blouse, and used pieces of the bodice and sleeves for a small tote bag with same fabric handles and a velcro closure to carry toiletries in, and a little cosmetic case for small items. Then with the tiny pieces left, I sewed a little purse for a friend's grandaughter. Its great to start the creative juices flowing, have fun making things, and reuse things not really usable.

Great giveaway!!!My fav sweater is the soft pink lambswool fair isle sweater.

Misia Pepa Adventures said...

I follow your blog :o)

Misia Pepa Adventures said...

A new green thing for me: I just made reusable produce bags so we don't use the plstic ones at the store. It was another first that it was also my first tutotrial n my blog.

Tempe said...

Besides 671, I also follow your blog and your tutorials are wonderful!!

Tempe said...

The newest green thing are the softies made from felted wool for the Toy Society.

victoria said...

I like 680 - it's brown.
and 667 - with rhinestones
oh, there's a pink cashmere too, and I better stop now...

victoria said...

Something new and green, hmmm. I am growing an indoor plant with my black thumb. I watered it today and am proud to say that it is still alive after a month. That's a big step. It's a jade from my friend.

victoria said...

blogged!

Kathy said...

Happy Earth Day. What a fine giveaway. My favorite sweater is the purple cobalt blue cardigan with the bright yellow trim. I've been making mittens this winter with one of my friends. We had a real "Factory" going for awhile.

..........B............ said...

I love the [676] Soft patterned wool sweater. =)

mamaTAVE said...

The chocolate merino wool sweater (680) is one that I would like to wear "as is" or, depending on the size, turn into a cardigan of some sort.

I tried a new Earth Day project with my students today. They had never heard of the idea, and loved it. I am excited to hear their stories about giving the May Day baskets away... Check out the details: http://mamatave.blogspot.com/2010/04/earth-day-may-day-baskets.html

TrishB said...

Here's my green thing of the day for yesterday. I actually got out of my car at a stop light and picked up a large piece of newspaper that was blowing across the road. Then I brought it home and recycled it! :-)

Vicki K. said...

I like the pink #669 - as I am collecting purples, royal blues and pinks. However, I have no pinks yet! Thanks for a fun giveaway!

Gayle said...

I would love the two wool skirts that you have listed there - I'd dye the wool and use it in one of my hooked rugs - YUM!

Hannah said...

I saved one of my daughter's favorite dresses to alter for her lovely tallness. Now...to actually sew it.

bodicegoddess said...

"2 plaid wool blend shirts for upcycling" are my favorite item. They'd be great for Christmas stockings, or, with an embroidered edge, coasters for the cabin!

I am intriqued by the merino #668. I enjoy your blog with tons of ideas!

I am now an official follower, as opposed to a pop in when I think of it kind of follower.

6 Berries said...

I can't possibly pick only one sweater that I like the best, it just seems so unfair to all the others, but I was able to narrow it down to two. #639 Soft pink lambswool fair isle sweater and #676 Soft patterned wool sweater.

Nike said...

My fav is the white Aeropostal with the snow flake.
