Funtastickz Trassh Artz “From Ragz To Blanketz”


From Ragz To Blanketz is an art and craft project/problem-solving tool developed by the environmental artist Dennis N. Easter to transform old clothing into blankets to prevent the resources from ending up in the landfill. The dress used was either too worn to wear or too damaged to donate. To date, 9/5/21, the artist has created ten blankets.

I embellished saved clothing with beautiful patterns, colors, designs, and textures, which is why I did not want to discard them. I used garments made of Khaki, cotton, silk, polyester, and wool. I also used sheets and clothing that my girlfriend had thrown in the trash. The hardest part was to put all the colors together so they would not clash. I cut all the dresses into squares before being sewn together. The average blanket took one month to complete.

  • Brilliant idea I have been working on for a few months, a little different in that my clothing used is extremely out of date and no longer fits me. only I call them quilts and my stuffing is fabric as well.
