I plan to have a 'Green Corner" at my next craft fair. Need pattern ideas. Have swiffer cover, water bottle bottle holders, cotton dish clothes, and coasters made with used CDs. Any more ideas?

How about bags made from flour sacks, belts made from soda can tabs ( or just about anything made from soda can tabs), purses made from magazine pages (just laminate the pages and then use them as fabric)...

Let your imagination run wild!

Thanks for the ideas, crochetgal and Bambi! I found a lot of ideas using soda can pull tabs! As luck would have it, I found a jar of perhaps 1oo of them in my son's room-he hasn't lived at home for 7 years! Quess he wouldn't mind if I used them!!
