and I’m an elephant king! My green gingham outfit is made out of an old shirt and my...um... bones/fat/muscles...you get it...are made of stuffing from an old pillow. Therefore I'm an eco-friendly elephant!
I love crafting but I have a tendency to fall in love with material: fabric, buttons, rubons, you name it!. Material that I might not need at the moment but that I will certainly use in the future. When exactly, a mystery! Recently, I started to feel guilty to buy, lets see, another meter of gray tweed or a pretty pair of wooden leaf buttons or the thickest red wool that I have ever seen. I'm normally a pretty responsible consumer but it seems that it doesn't apply to craft material. For the sake of the minimal storage in my loft (and for the environment!) I should try to figure out what I can create with material that I already have or that I can recycle. Afterall, my husband has a lot of shirts (I see a pretty quilt) and sweaters (I see felted wool accessories) that will eventually have to be replace!
