THIS MONTH’S WINNER Dale Hoh, from Campbell, ACT, for her Ragged Rocks rag rug project: “When I saw the wonderful rug made from T-shirts (Ragged Rocks, by Michelle Bardwell) in the August 2015 edition of Homespun (Vol 16 No 8), I knew I had to have one! I set about asking everyone I knew for old T-shirts and even went to our local garbage tip, where they have a cage of discarded clothes used for rags. I found the instructions really easy to follow and I have a tip to make pushing the fabric through the base easier. Use a long-nosed pair of tweezers to push the fabric through.

Sparkling acces-sari Not everyone has a sari or two going begging in their wardrobe, but you can pick up these wonders of silk, embroidery and beads quite cheaply at markets and on eBay – and look what Bollywood glamour they bring to your wardrobe and home. Let’s start with the fashion-accessory side of things with this glowing orange scarf. All you have to do for this nifty piece of recycling is to choose the best part of an old sari, cut it out in a strip and hem the edges. Done!
