Sew Eco - Sewing Sustainable and Re-Used Materials by Ruth Singer

Sustainable sewing projects dont have to be scratchy hemp skirts and brown patchwork aprons - you could be making beautiful one-off pieces for yourself and your home from unique and unusual eco-friendly recycled or vintage fabrics. A whole new generation of savvy sewers have been dusting off old sewing machines but they dont want to make just any old thing. This book will guide readers through a series of stylish sewing projects with a focus on sourcing and using sustainable fabrics. The projects teach different aspects of sewing, starting with making cushions from recycled shirts, old jumpers, vintage buttons and other materials, working through making simple skirts and bags, to using leather appliqu, working with vintage lace and peace silk, using organic fabrics for scarves and shawls and even upcycling an old suede skirt or hat into something beautiful and unique.
