The inspiration for this project was my large and now obsolete tape collection! I can’t bring myself to throw them away…so a new upcycling project was born! I want to add cassette tape to everything now! The fabric created is surprisingly wearable and very light weight. It was a bit weird to work with. It took some getting used to the slippery, crinkly texture but I’m hooked now!
