Crispina French

Crispina French uses second hand sweaters and other recycled materials to make one of a kind blankets, rugs, flowers, and many other functional and craft items. She also runs workshops teaching her methods.
Flowers made from wire, reclaimed buttons, recycled cotton t-shirts, dress shirts and ribbon.

Rugs made from old cotton t-shirts or woolen sweaters

Blankets from recycled woolen sweaters.
" I machine wash and dry wool and natural fiber wool blend sweaters to arrive at a soft, full texture. Then I cut shapes and carefully sew them edge to edge in an inlaying process. This construction technique provides a single plane that makes the blanket a single layer thick with two useable sides."
