My baby's a recycler!

The only credit I can take for this one is genetics.  I'm the proud mother of a recycler.  Over the years my son has learned he can walk into my workroom and pretty much ask for anything and it's on hand.  School projects were always a fun time for us.  Tonight he asked if I had any scraps of heavy leather because he wanted to turn an old belt into a guitar strap.  He knows where my tools are so I turned him loose.  He came back 30 minutes later with this project.  He used the waistband off old jeans, punched holes with a leather punch and sewed the two together with an old shoelace.  I couldn't be more proud!
