Waste not, want not!
While it is fun to buy supplies, there is a special feeling that comes along with taking old materials and transforming them into something new. For the Reclaimed Contest, reclaim materials that were used to make one thing and use them to create a whole new project!
Tear out all the wood, plastic, metal, fabric and more from your old and failed projects. It’s time to see what new creation emerges from these reclaimed materials!
Michelle gave a new life to her old typewriter case by transforming it into a suitcase adapted for her sewing and soft furnishing repair supplies for Repair Cafe. Inserts were made on the laser cutter (1/4” plywood).
