Recyle and Reuse

I had been throwing out the top hems of the sheets that I use for my rag rugs....
I finally got an idea after feeling guilty about wasting the hem
and here's what I came up with.
I made this large tote bag out of the hems of various sheets to make the bag
and the pocket.
I used a piece of sheet for the handles and an old pillowcase for the lining.
It would make a cute "sleepover" bag....since it's made out of sheets.  LOL!
Anyway, it will make a great tote for dirty clothes, groceries, clothes shopping or whatever else.
Next thing...
I have an idea brewing in my little head.
We have this old door sitting in our backyard and the glass is broken.
I was thinking if I took all the glass out and brought the door inside
that I could use it as a........
get your imagination going.....
quilt rack.

I think the weathered look of the door and the old handle would be cool
to put my grannies quilt over. 
Do you see it??
Stand the door up and put the quilt through the window space.
Earl thinks I'm crazy, but  I think it will look really cool!
Recycle and Reuse and make some cool stuff.....
that's what I'm talking about!

Love the bag! I no longer feel guilty when I toss a selvedge or scrap away, I have boxes full and truth be told I will never use them all! Did you move? Love the door, can't wait to see it!
