I was sitting watching the UK Channel 4 programme SuperScrimpers wearing a top that was pulling under my arm uncomfortably, because it had become too tight; thinking:
'I must put this in the textile recycling bag',
when a Top Tip item came up to recycle old T-shirts into cushions!
So I got up and changed into a different top; cut up the top I'd been wearing; put a ballpoint needle and some navy thread into my sewing machine and voila!
a cushion was born.
Have you done any similar recycling projects yourself?
