I just love this fabulous felted vest over at Atlantis Home.
What a chic way to recycle wool sweaters.
We have our own way of recycling wool sweaters at Revolution Malibu.
Our beanie design is the most popular. We use all recycled, felted sweaters and recycled leather
( crosses, skulls, fleur de lis etc... ) and vintage studs.
Everything we do at Revolution Malibu is based on recycling, handmade, eco friendly and local products. I love seeing what others are doing with recycled materials. The Alabama Stitch Book is my favorite source for ideas for recycling t-shirts. Below are some of the designs we have done based on the techniques from the book. Our efforts were even recognized by designer Natalie Chanin who included a picture of our work on her blog.
This is a completely redesigned ( we make our own patterns )recycled t-shirt with reverse applique and vintage studs.
One of my favorite projects is the skirt in the Alabama Stitch Book. I've done a few versions of it including circles, and now skulls...
This the Alabama Chanin version...
This is my version...
Being so close to the beach we have a recycled t-shirt bikini top that's perfect for strolling around town with a pair of cutt-off levi shorts.
