When I heard my friend Linda Peterson had a new book coming out I knew it would be awesome! Everything she dreams up in her creative studio is awesome and her new book Upcycled Jewelry, Bags, Belts and More lives up to my grandest expectations. This book is packed with 35 beautiful ways to reuse everyday objects and with the turn of each page, I kept saying to myself “wow!” “awesome” “cool”. The chapters are divided into Simple and Chic, Big and Bold and Handbags and Accessories.
Linda definitely has me looking at discards completely differently. Did you know that you can transform a plastic CD spacer into sea glass earrings? How about a bicycle inner tube loop de loop ring? Or a soda-tab crochet purse? I want to try them all!
How can I possibly pick my favorites from this book! I’m in love with them all! But these plastic CD spacer faux sea glass earrings are the BEST!
I’m really into crochet right now so this purse caught my eye. My first concern was who would ever drink all those sodas (they are SO bad for you) but when I learned you can actually buy soda tabs, I gave this project a thumbs up!
