Sew with Cotton Bags
Make aprons to curtains--the ideas are quite creative

Though these cloth bags aren't as prevalent as they once were, I've noticed them in my grocery store again.
Or think about recycling pillowcases and other linens, or reuse the fabric from clothing.
Recycling is not only environmentally sound, but it can be sentimental to use items from a friend or a family member.
Fabric from childhood clothing holds dear memories, along with grandma's favorite pants, etc.
When my grandmother passed away, I was in the 9th grade and it caught me by surprise.
I was too distraught to think clearly enough to save a pair of pants she always wore--white with red bicycles.
I have always regretted not keeping those pants.
It's interesting where our sentiments lie--sometimes in seemingly insignificant items and moments.
