Recycling Leather, Tank Tops, Socks and More!

At the Junk shop, I've been brainstorming a few ideas for working with some of the awesome recycled leather and faux leather I've been accumulating over the last year. And I thought, why not save a pair of jeans or a jacket while recycling scrap fabric? Patches!

The best part of these cute patch ideas is that they each use another recycled component. T-shirts, socks, jeans - things that can't be saved can help another beloved garment last a bit longer.
