Repurposing with the Crafting in Color Street Team

The Crafting in Color Etsy Street Team is a group dedicated to keeping Etsy bright and colorful.  To find items made by team members simply use the search term "cic team" on the Etsy page.  You may even find some fantastic repurposed items (aside from those in my shop...I'm a member!).

Here are a few of my favorite repurposed finds by members of the Crafting in Color Team:

This small wallet by sewZinski was repurposed from an out-dated leather skirt and hand embroidered and lined with cotton.

Wallet Leather Black Colorful Embroidery $40

The Etsy shop of loranscruggs is full of eco-friendly whistles, toys and sculptures all made from recycled tin cans and bottle caps.  Here is a fun truck sculpture from her shop.

Recycled Handmade Red Tin Truck $300

Repurposed leftover fabrics were used by karibombari to create this limited edition cuff bracelet.

SUPERCUFF limited edition 'Sorbet' $26.95

Frank613's Etsy shop features paintings on refurbished, antique framed windows he finds in his native Chicago.

Painted Glass Multicolor One Liner $100
