I am not one of those women who is an expert at making things. I’m just not very good at it but I do have friends who are and sometimes I do get a teensy bit jealous when they show me a bag or dress or some-such that they’ve made from an old curtain. So I have the utmost respect for the lady behind these wonderful products.
Betz White is a Maryland mother of two boys who describes herself as a designer and green crafter. She writes a great blog showing you how to do things like make an apron out of an old canvas bag or fashion new shorts from an old shirt.
She also documents her life as a mum with some great pictures and anecdotes.
What’s more you can buy into this great lifestyle through Betz’s Etsy shop, where she sells everything from beautiful fabric to a variety of downloadable sewing patterns for hats and cute plushies. Prices start at just US$8 for the patterns up to US$65 for a ready made cushion. I’m ready to have a go if you are…
