Artist Sandee Jaastad

 The inspiration for this fashion outfit came from the current emphasis on recycling --what could I do with the ever-present Walmart bags? The bags were flattened and cut crosswise into 2" Strips which were circles. They were joined together by looping them through each other and then wound into a large rag shuttle.The jacket and purse were woven in a twill pattern using the strips. The dress was sewn using commercial white fabric and was embellished with more of the same strips, and flattened by finger pressing.

Please note: I did NOT purchase enough items to fill these bags, most were donated to me!
