Recycle Kitty for South Florida Swap-O-Rama

I drew this recycling kitty cat for the South Florida Swap-O-Rama that was at Trash to Treasure Creative Re-Use Center. It was put on by The Dirty Peaches Clothing Co who make clothing from 100% recycled, rescued, post-consumer or vintage materials. It was a super fun event where you bring in a bag of unwanted clothes and swap it for clothes you pick out at the swap. Then you got to go to one of the sewer/ designers and have your picks created into whatever you dreamed of. I had a flowery shoulder bag made from pajama pants and a scrap floral fabric and a tank top made with more of the floral scrap and string. Also you could have one of 3 winning designs screen printed on your items using the Yudu screenprinting machine. My recycling kitty was one of those designs and it was so cute and exciting to have the kitty on different crafted items. This was a two day event and at the end was a fashion show to show off the creations. Can't wait for more events from these crafty ladies. Now i am dreaming of having a sewing machine..
Peace & Love!
