By John Murphy
(Lark Books, $14.95, ISBN: 1-60059-604-5)

From the Publisher:

Quick-there’s a monster in your closet! No? Then, MAKE one! Every closet hides a multitude of out-of-style sweaters, pearl-trimmed jackets, ill-fitting jeans…and worse. And all the repurposing in the world won’t make them wearable again. Fortunately, the inimitable John Murphy of Stupid Sock Creature fame has devised a “green” solution: take those ugly pink sport coats and muumuus and turn them into goofy goonies, multi-legged monsters, other awesomely adorable creatures. They’re all charmingly illustrated with cartoonish élan by the author himself.

Green Grocery Bag Challenge

The Green Grocery Bag Challenge is a project to encourage sewists to wrap their holiday gifts in reusable cloth grocery bags, thus reducing the amount of wrapping paper entering the waste stream while simultaneously getting multi-use bags into the hands of consumers. Please include Mother Earth in your holiday plans. Read more here and join us on The Green Grocery Bag Challenge Facebook page where we’ll be posting wrapping ideas, sewing patterns and tips for reducing waste this holiday season.
