My grandmother made rag rugs from old clothing. She told me everything can be used at least twice before it is thrown away. I salvage clean fabrics and beautiful buttons and reuse them to make unique clothing for 18" dolls, the size of American Girl dolls. I design most of the clothing. Make my own patterns, and sew the Garments and Accessories. I hope to pass on to your children my grandmother's ideals of not wasting anything, especially when you can make something beautiful from it.
