Waste Not

Today is Food Waste Friday at Frugal Girl. I've really been encouraged not to let food go to waste since I've become part of her community. This week I had a banana that was threatening to get too brown and spotty (I like them at the just-yellow stage) and I ate it for a snack before it could languish on the counter. Rice is another thing that tends to sit in our fridge for too long, but yesterday I added it to a salad, so no food waste for this week!

On the waste not front, here's a skirt I made for little girls, entirely out of scraps. It's all cashmere, so it's super soft, and I love the way it's swingy. I love being able to use all of a sweater when I'm making things! (if you'd like to see more like it, you can visit my Etsy shop).
