I have assembled a fun collection for you to incorporate a little recycling and the re-use of items that may otherwise end up getting thrown away.  Here are 16 beautiful and totally free projects that make the most of things you can repurpose in to something useful again.  Enjoy and happy crocheting!

Here are some of the materials we'll be exploring:

  • Plarn (plastic grocery bag yarn),
  • An upcycled shirt,
  • Recycled objects such as cds, metal tab tops, and greeting cards)
