Something Green UWIB Blog Hop

Welcome to our first monthly UWIB Blog Hop!  Every 4th Sunday we will have a new hop with a new theme along with our fabulous UWIB participants!  Be prepared to be wowed by our members!  UWIB, Unique Women in Business, is an ETSY Team - our members are creative, supportive, and are wonderful friends!

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, this month’s theme is “Something Green.”  I'm featuring a couple of my "green" things.  First is this set of adorable hand-chenilled potholders.  I just love the little birdies, they remind me of the Twitter Bird, on a green background.



The second "Something Green" that I have to share with you is my upcycled "Everyone Loves an Irish Girl" Tote.  It used to be a TShirt and I have now transformed it into this cute little tote.  Who wouldn't want this for their St. Patrick's Day celebration?



Be sure to check out my RitasCreationsOnETSY shop for more potholders, St. Patrick's Day themed totes, Pee Pee Cones, and more....  And please visit my UWIB sisters who are participating in the "Something Green" Blog Hop too!  You'll be green with envy when you're done!

Rita - I enjoyed seeing the potholders you created as well as the upcycled bag you made from a t-shirt! What a clever way to reuse a shirt and put it to good use! Thanks also for coordinating the first UWIB Blog Hop! I've been visiting the other artisans on the Hop and am so impressed with the creativity of each person on the team as well as how they interpreted the theme. What fun!

Super cute coasters!

SewDanish said...

I absolutely love how you upcycle fabric making them into beautiful purposeful items. It is such a lovely challenge finding a new purpose for fabric and items that already have had a well loved life behind them.
Thank you for organizing this blog hop and keeping us all honest :-)
