Ultimate Recycling

This raincoat was made by my partner in quilting, Donna Barnitz, for the 2007 Santa Fe Recycle Fashion Show. It is a modified Simplicity pattern, stitched from 8 - 50 lb Purina Dog Food bags and one yellow Ol' Roy bag. The tarp-like "fabric" is perfect for inclement weather. A matching umbrella completes the ensemble. Modeled by Donna's beautiful daughter, Katy, it was the First Place winner! Way to go, Donna! The photos were taken by Paula Scott.
