Come Sail Away...

...come sail away, come sail away with me!
(My apologies to anyone who now has that song stuck in her head.)

I love usable and decorative items that had a former life. I also love sailing. What better way to combine these two passions than in a tote bag? Or a pillow? Or a wallet? Or a pet bed? You get the picture.

Katherine at Reiter8 has a large selection of bags, wallets and pillows available and every piece is made from a recycled sail.

There's also a terrific video that shows how the sails are turned into other objects.

For the four-legged set, Green with Envy has a pet bed made from a recycled sail.

These things also make gifts for friends and family! It's never too early to start thinking about greening up for the holidays!
