DIY Fashion & Recycling: ThreadBanger

Video Demo: How to Crochet Flower Appliqués with Used Yarn & Making Recycled Sleeping Bags

Compiled by Vicki McClure Davidson

 

ThreadBanger's Rob and Corinne, with Corinne's Aunt Net, are in Pennsylvania and demonstrate the art of crocheting, using used yarn from an old homemade afghan found at the recycling center. Aunt Net demonstrates how to crochet flower appliqués. Recycled yarn or new yarn can be used for the project.

Also in this episode of ThreadBanger, the Bag Ladies of Coryland Church, a local church group of devoted women volunteers, make one-of-a-kind sleeping bags for the homeless using only recycled materials. All the sleeping bags are made by hand.

 

To view ThreadBanger's embedded YouTube video without its Google ads at the bottom, click the button with the X in the lower right corner (it appears shortly after the video starts to play). However, please view the ads at least once all the way through so that the sponsors are happy and ThreadBanger earns a tiny bit of revenue. Since you'll likely watch this how-to video a couple of times, watching it at least once with the displayed ads, and clicking any of them that are intriguing to you, should be no hardship.
