I am not a crafty person.

It even takes me a while to get around to simple mending jobs.

For example: I have two pillows that I got at a garage sale when I bought an air mattress for camping. The gal threw them in for free because they both needed to be stitched up at the seam so the stuffing wouldn’t come out.

We freecycled that air mattress last summer after four or five summers sleeping on it in a tent.


"A while" is a relative term.

It’s tempting for me to just pitch things like threadbare sheets, torn jeans, or stained up shirts for lack of time.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll need the 12 ideas I share over at Green Your Way: A Dozen {Not so Crafty} Ways to Use an Old Sheet

There are ideas for inside and outside the house, kids, cleaning, and more.

Read them all and add your own in the comments right HERE.
