Merry Christmas! Thanks for making a little time during this busy holiday season to listen to Episode 17!
I've learned so much about felting and recycling sweaters from the Sweater Chop Shop, so it was terrific to have a chance to visit with author Crispina ffrench. Here are a few links that can tell you more about Crispina.
UPDATED 12/23: Here's a shot of the felted wool stocking, made from a recycled Old Navy wood sweater.

Here's the cute Christmas ornament from the clever gals at my quilt guild party. There are tons of fun things happening out there with fabric selvages. These were foundation-stitched to a thin piece of batting and a solid backing fabric. Outside edges are raw, with just one row of topstitching about a quarter-inch from the edge. Everyone loved them!
Listener Valerie (scrooquilt) sent these photos of tote bags made from cleaned-out birdseed bags. That heavy-duty plastic will make for a durable shopping bag - great idea, Valerie!
Finally, here's the link to the great fabric gift wrapping (and tag-making) ideas.
This link came to me from Darla at the Scientific Quilter - thanks, Darla! (and if you're not a fan of Darla's yet, please get yourself over there and listen - she's great!)
