I consider myself a very resourceful, thrifty person who has both taught myself, and learned, many tips over the years on how to live very happily on a budget.
I know how to shop for groceries, clothing, and household items all economically and my family can vouch for me! 🙂
One project I decided to tackle this summer was making my own pillows using recycled fabric. I used ends of fabric I had left over from other projects, clothing I was donating, and other pieces of fabric from unused curtains, or table cloths.
First I decided on the colours I was looking for, then I searched to see if I had any material that I could use. BINGO!!!
One item I used was a button-up, collared micro-fibre shirt. From this I made a wonderful rectangular throw pillow using the buttons up the front as the opening and for decoration. It turned out great!
I also made reusable pillow covers for ugly worn-out pillows from unused table cloths.
I like to believe and constantly challenge myself to think outside the box!
Be earth friendly, reduce, reuse, recycle!
