I don't know how I feel about "upcycling" a book and book crafts in general but this is pretty cute! Upcycled Zippered Book Clutch – Free Sewing Tutorial by See Kate Sew + Upcycled Sewing Projects by Betz White
Love the blue and white. Men's cotton shirts made into patchwork quilt with striped sheet as backing. Great memory quilt to share with family or use for a baby boy. Easy straight line machine or hand quilting as shown in picture.
Upcycle sweaters into pillows. I like this idea and plan to make pillows from sweaters I hated to part with. Wall hangings with husbands fishing shirts for Father's Day wall hangings at work. Love the sweater idea.
