You might not think of a bike inner tube as a fabric, but you can use the rubber as a great, durable textile! Most bike shops just toss blown out tubes once they've finished the repair, so there's a good chance you can score some inner tubes for free if you hit up your local bike shop and ask them to save some for you. Free and totally recycled? Sounds fab to me!
