Custom Design My Recycled Treasures

On this page you will find things I have recycled back into use. I love working with un wanted items either simply trash [ no raw waste of course ] or everyday discards heading for the dump.

My main purpose for posting these recycled treasures is to stir up your imagination and recycle what you feel is no longer needed. But, if you see something you like, contact me and I may be able to recreate it for you, or if you wish, work with your recycled treasures.

My companion animals were all un wanted rescues and by some wonder made their way to me, I recycled them into my lifes purpose and in turn they have taught me so much about living. Perhaps, while you are visiting the Internet maybe you can check out the local pet rescue groups and recycle some unwanted treasures into your life, It is well worth it.

Please recycle and help save the earth, she will be grateful.

Shipping & Handling is additional on all items.




Recycled fabrics shopping bags by Barbara at Oasis Originals dot net

Recycled Clothes Shopping Bags

I made this set of four shopping bags from eight pieces of clothing, and some fabric scraps. 2 ladies overall skirt/shorts, 4 men's shirts, and 2 ladies blouses. Made good use of the pockets also. Everything is doubled in fabric weigh so all the seams are fused to another piece of full fabric and stitched down ( I line each layer of all my bags for stiffness and durability ) and each bag is 1" smaller than the previous so they sit well inside one another.  Click image for larger view of one bag.

I would be more than willing to work with your recycled clothes however you would be responsible for shipping them to me and they must be clean. These must also be fabrics that can be safely ironed.

Blue Jeans Shopping Bag

Contact me for recycling YOUR old jeans into a re-usable shopping bag! Growing up in the 60's & 70's I have seen a lot of bags made from old blue jeans. Most of the styles I did not like, way to soft & flat. So I designed a much more sturdy, three dimensional bag made from one pair of jeans, two pairs of shorts and extra " zebra " fabric for the lining. All my bags are made with several layers of fabrics used as stabilizers. They are hand wash only but this is to keep their form and they will last for years.   Click images showing front and back, for larger views.

Recycled: Pet Sweaters

I am always trying to use recycled things in my work. I have made new sweaters out of old sweatshirts that are over loved and stained. Add a few scraps of fabric and your best friend has a new coat. The larger dogs sweater is my favorite sweatshirt, that my husband is happy to see go, and the smaller pooch's new rags are recycled down from my larger dogs 2005 sweater. No complaints from the two of them either.

Special attention is paid to giving my clothing double layering, for dogs with allergies who itch themselves raw. The double fabric layers lend support to protect their skin, and add length to the life of the clothing article. Prices vary depending on your choice of styles, fabrics and additional decorations.


Contact me and let me know if you have a well cherished piece of clothing that would be perfect as a one of a kind cloak for your beast. I'll be happy to give you an estimate. I have no problem working with used clothing as long as they are machine washable and sent clean to me.

Cat Perch Cat Stand made from Recycled Fish Tank Wood Stand

Fish Tank Stand becomes Cat's Stand

Cat tank stand is a 35 gallon wooden fish tank stand that I removed the door from, added windows and a strong, removable top and covered it with carpet. I lined the bottom in cedar for flea and spider control and my kitty Romeo was able to enjoy it for many years, although he did miss the fish tank.

Gun Case becomes Curio "Curious" Cabinet

The solid hardwood gun case was found at a garage sale in major need of a refinish. I used the part that holds the guns as a crown on the top, added shelves, a new face, and now it is my curious cabinet and is put to better use. Click Image for Larger View
