These plush kitties made from plastic bags are part of a project by graphic designer David Shin called Eco Tabby. According to several sources, Shin decided to work with plastic bags because he didn’t know how to sew. As someone who appreciates eco-friendly crafting and who also works with plastic bags (I sometimes use plarn—plastic yarn—when I crochet), I really love these kitties and wish I had come up with the idea myself!
At this time, these cute little upcycled tabbies aren’t for sale. I just wish there were a pattern out there, so I could make some of my own!
Update: There IS a pattern! Yay!
I love oddball cat-related things, and I’m a big advocate of recycling and upcycling, so of course I really enjoy these fun prints from Collage-O-Rama. What they do is take pages from old dictionaries about to be destroyed and upcycle them in order to create unique, rather odd pieces of art that are environmentally-friendly. How cool! They also have a sister store called Note Art that does prints on sheet music.
All of the prints are just $6.99, and if you buy three prints, you’ll get a fourth one free!
Are the prints above just a bit too silly for you? Well, no worries—they have many prints to choose from, and you can even get your own custom print made, using a photograph of your choice!
Custom prints are currently on sale for $19.99, marked down from $29.95. I’m actually thinking about offering a custom print for our next giveaway. How does that sound? Anyone interested? :3
