A Modern Take on the Doily $850 Lamp for less than $50? Yes Please! Hello Pretty people! We are so excited to share a project we did this past weekend.
Tutorial time! I got a gig teaching a recycled t-shirt project at the library a few months ago, with a request for a recycled tee bag – the only bags I’d made from tees in the past had required sturdy sewing , and I didn’t want hand-sewing to be the only thing holding the bottom closed in a class version of the bags, so I started brainstorming about some kind of hand-sewing-friendly or no-sew bag idea…. and here’s what I came up with! The simplest version of these bags is great for smaller tees, or the more light-weight kind of girl-tees – just turn the bottom of the shirt into a drawstring and tie it closed!
You can make a container garden in almost anything, even common bags lying around the house. Watch how to make an easy and green herb garden in a reusable grocery bag. See Transcript Hi.
Growing lettuce is really easy and it thrives in these plastic, reusable lunch bags, which can be bought at Whole Foods for just 79 cents. You could also grow flowers, herbs or many other container garden vegetables , equally successfully in any plastic, reusable grocery bag. Lettuce is a great container gardening vegetable because with its short roots, you can grow lettuce in almost anything with good drainage - even a shallow container. However lettuce likes to be kept moist, and it is easier to keep your plants moist in a larger container that holds more soil, because the more soil, the better the water retention. You can grow lettuce from seed or buy seedlings, which are usually inexpensive. Start with a sunny spot, but one that isn’t too hot.
