Not long before ANPTmag suggested recycling as the theme for this issue, designer Jo Gatenby had been browsing the internet, collecting pictures and ideas for a guild project – including making jewelry from recycled items. Great minds think alike! Jo says, “I immediately pulled out my folder and began figuring out what I would do … and I even did my first ever Dorset Button. For those of you who have done these interesting buttons before … this one has a cool twist! Then on a trip to England to visit our youngest daughter’s family and our new granddaughter, I was once again able to incorporate recycling to create an adorable hat and mitt set, which I can’t wait to tell you all about!”
Jo created three projects. Two of these have deliberately been left vague, though the floss used is listed, in the hope that you’ll search your stash and add your own creativity!
