Waste not want not

Upcycling, recycling, repurposing - whatever you want to call it people are increasingly loath to throw things away.

There's been a lovely thread on Folksy showcasing people's upcycled items and I thought I'd show you a few of my favourites:

Patchy Pocket by Ellie's Treasures

Measuring tape fancy bow brooch by Lilidrawspictures

Wee Jock Scottie dog by SophieCat

Upcycled map handbound notebook by Toggle

Comic strip tags by Evie George

Saucer candle holder by Loglike
