I utilised to be a single of the folks that frown at the words reuse and recycle but with the state of our earth and atmosphere, it is imperative to be conscious of our daily use of things. As you know, I am a yarn lover and like to crochet. Now there are products that I have created for myself or others that under no circumstances get used. And some items get utilised so so generally that it is now time to give them up.
I have this sweater I created when I was mastering to crochet, two sizes bigger and in a colour that does not even match my personality and I still wear each winter. I can not bring myself to give it up and I believe this happens to a lot of folks who like handmade items. What do you do with Undesirable Handmade products produced with Yarn?
1. Donate Products: If your handmade item is not worn out and can be donated, please donate it. There are so lots of folks who will appreciate your donated handmade item. I by no means realized until the World Soccer in South Africa to recognize that South Africa has a winter season and I am Nigerian! So understand that a big aspect of the globe will cherish your stuff. If you are seeking to donate and not very sure on how to get started, please speak to me.
2. Unravel Yarn – I know some folks are screaming at me at this moment. You can unravel yarn from knitted or crochet stuff and either reuse it to make items to donate or use it at your residence. You can even create an art project of dying the unravelled yarn into a different color and voila! you have new yarn.
I will post on how to unravel yarn a single of these weeks. Keep tuned for Copper taps . Uncover One more Use – If you do not want to unravel or donate, you can uncover other purposes for your worn handmade items. You can use it as rags, polishers, mats, and so forth. Just cut it into what you want to use it for and sew the ends.
4. Cherish Forever – For me, I have an attachment to my very first sweater I produced. You can save it if there are sentimental values for it and make art from it.
