Putting the Cycle in Up-Cycle

If you haven’t heard, I’m going to be participating in a super amazing event this Thursday night in NYC. I will be a panelist at Re-Invision, Re-Cycle, Re-Store along with a bunch of other inspiring NYC-based designers that incorporate re-cycled or up-cycled materials in their work. I’m going to give a super quick tutorial on how to make these totally nifty necklaces made out of old t-shirts.

Speaking of up-cycling, it turns out that The National Center for Craft and Design has selected the un-knitting machine as one of the best student design projects of 2012.

Designed by Kingston University’s Imogen Hedges, the un-knitting machine helps recycle unwanted knitted sweaters back into it’s pre-knitted form. Check out the video below to see how.
