Silvana Flamini of Rome, Italy is a talented crafter, cook and photographer. You can see evidence of all three on her blog: http://www.unpopercelia.blogspot.com/. It will help if you can read Italian, but the pictures are worth a thousand words.
She made this belt from recycled jeans. Very clever!
And I love that photo of the cabbage. Wouldn't it be interesting to print it on fabric for a quilt?
