Circular and Crafty.

I have been enchanted by some recycled fabric concepts this week, having noticed these textile ‘ball’ ideas, which mirror some of my own wrapping and coiling approaches to making.

The recent issue of Selvedge magazine highlighted something very novel from www.thirddrawerdown.com, who distribute these bold scrap fabric doorstops.

The theme of incorporating wrapped fabric into balls, this time using sari’s was a feature in a recent post from the Upcyclist.  An Istanbul design firm have created a family of furniture, with upholstery made from balls of recycled Nepalese yarn.
