The list author says: "Last year I started recycling clothes for myself. The things I found in stores were expensive, badly made, and--I didn't like them! I wanted something different.
Reading Crispina Ffrench's "Sweater Chop Shop" changed everything. Her book showed me how to make great new things for myself. Eventually, it led me open my own recycled clothing shop. Here are some of my very favorite recycled clothing books. And if you'd like, please come visit my shop to see what I did with these ideas! http://www.bluekimonostudio.etsy.com"
"This is one of the classic books on the subject and includes many ideas for clothes as well as household item. I especially like the examples in the back showing how real people have used these ideas."
