OK, the birds are actually blue, but a green idea. My hand made flock of birds are made entirely of recycled materials. I started creating these birds after finishing my first t-shirt rug. Scroll down for a picture of the recycled t-shirt rug, and how to cut down your old t-shirts for use.
I had some left over t-shirt ribbon at the end of creating a rug and thought that I could come up with a new recycling idea for the left over t-shirts. I used an old sweater for the filling and then began wrapping t-shirt ribbons around them. The other day I bought a 99 cent grab bag of fabric and cut this beautiful blue spandex blend into strips and began wrapping them around the recycled sweater. I love the blue, and have been trying out new wing designs and I really think this one works. In the end, I think that this little flock will go up for sale in my recycling store on Etsy.
