    It is interesting. I love when people take something and make it into something else. I think I’m drawn to projects that are meant to restore or turn waste into something useful. At least, that’s what bringing new life to old bicycle frames is all about.

    Great idea for a shelving unit! Very cool.
    My husband made a coffee cup sleeve out of a used bike tube. It works great!

      Meg, I’d love to hear more about how he did that! I bet it’s awesome!!

        It came out really cool. He took a cardboard sleeve from Starbucks for a template and traced it on to the bike tube. Then he cut it out and hand stitched up the sides using the blanket stitch.

        Here are some links to view it:


        It works really well. We ended up getting the insulated klean kanteens for our coffee drinking a little while after he made the bike tube coffee sleeve, so it doesn’t get as much wear anymore.

        There are so many cool projects you can make with bike tubes (bags, wallets, coffee sleeves, jewelry, collars for dogs, ect..)and its crazy how bike shops just toss them out everyday!
