Turn fruits into leather - recycle, redesign and refashion

The idea of having as little waste as possible is very important in our daily life. We are even more aware in social media about DIY fashion, redesign, upclycle and refashion. There are numerous DIY boards on Pinterest people like to learn about recycling. Instagram is rich with great ideas and videos about this topic. I had met at a special redesign session Sooo Bunny in Long Island City. However, I'm not sure if she does those DIY sessions with discarded or donated excess material from various businesses. Today I was fascinated to watch her video and I wanted to share her video with you. Your comments and similar links is greatly appreciated:
As we are talking about redesigning, after a year of purchasing this teal tshirt, at last I managed to figure out how to redesign it. Ever since I purchased it from the Loft, I never liked the way it looked on me. Hence, I was going thru my stash and found this blue tubing and voila. Now I can happily wear it.

Good morning 🌞 ah sunny day in #nyc after yesterday’s rain. Do you have in your #closet #tshirts sitting there, all #brandnew but you don’t like the way it looks on you? What do you do with them? Here is one of the T-shirts I had bought last year from #loft @loft and it has been sitting in my #projects #pile I wanted to #redesign however I never liked the additions to the split sleeves. This morning I found the perfect colorful blue cord from years past. I figured I would add to the center and tie as an accent. Stay tuned for updates. What projects you have pending and had the aha moment? . . . #fashion #redesignedfashion #fashiongoals #redoutfit #workinprogess #projects #projectdiva #handmadecrafts #redesign

Good morning on this 🌧 rainy ☔️ Tuesday in #newyorkcity I like to update you with the sleeves of this T-shirt. What do you think 🤔? I now feel that I can wear this brand new T-shirt. It was folded away in my closet for a year! Because I didn’t like the way the sleeves looked! Do you have blouses or T-shirts you bought and never wore? This T-shirt I had bought from The Loft in Bayterrace mall. Did you redesign an outfit? Tag me, I would love to see 🎀 I had this blue hues cord in my stash and I used it. . . . #junegoals #redesign #redesignedtshirt #fashionpost #embellishement #embellishnyc #tshirtslovers #tshirtdesign #tshirtcustom #tshirtstyle #tshirt #refashionedtshirt #loft #lucine #lucinedesigns #workinprogess #stitching #bayterrace #bayterracemall #baysidenyc #baysidequeens #mycloset #restyle

9 Blooming Container Gardens That Welcome Butterflies and Bees

Today I read:
I love nature and clean living. The importance of bees is well documented. Without their pollination ability, the food chain and agriculture will be doomed. And eventually hunger will prevail worldwide.

If you have a garden, isn't it better to plant to attract bees instead of the boring green grass? Besides, it's more pleasant to see blooming plants. Would you make more effort for the environment and good chain? Here is a great article in Houzz:

Recycle, upcycle your clothes

It's a great trend to stop and think about all the waste out there. We think often as to how we could reduce. We check out closet once in a while and decide some of the clothing are very outdated. Or they no longer fit us, perhaps we have lost some weight or we don't feel they are flattering.

If you are creative, here is a page you might like to check for great ideas and inspiration. If you do redesign a shirt or clothing, let's hear from you:
