With Betz's upcycling magic, your shirt cuffs become billfolds to hold the cash you save, and you'll learn endless variations on felted totes, limited only by your imagination and your stash of old wool sweaters.Watch each lesson in Project Upcycle on your own schedule, at your own pace, as many times as you like.
