Today I want to point out some great websites for Green Crafting ideas. I just found this site for “Crafting a Green World” http://craftingagreenworld.com/ . This site features DIY projects that incorporate reused, recycled and natural materials. You will find knitting, sewing, crocheting and other project ideas for eco-friendly and fashionable clothes, crafts, gifts and more. On the site I saw a great project for a linen canister cozy and one for recycling grocery bags into eco packaging. They even have some neat contests.

My Recycled Bags.com http://www.myrecycledbags.com/ has lots of ideas on recycling all sorts of materials into handbags, shopping bags, rugs, doll clothes and other creations. That should get the creative juices going!

If you have kids, you will want to check out About.com:Family Crafts. This page, http://familycrafts.about.com/od/craftsbyproduct/a/trashcrafts.htm, has lots of cool ideas on recycling trash into fun crafts. With summer vacation coming up soon it’s not too early to plan some new activities.

There’s also a great article entitled “Green Crafting:Can It Make a Difference?” by Mary Welling-Bonney on this Suite101.com page http://crafts.suite101.com/article.cfm/victorian_christmas You will find some really good tips here.

There are lots more ideas out there if you just take some time to look for them. You might just come up with some great ideas of your own. If you do, I hope you share them with us here at Rag Queen Quilters.
