I've been searching all over the web since I started making tabistry admiring other artist's work. There are sooo many cool ideas out there. Youtube.com is one of my favorite stops for inspriational videos. So , I would like to share some of my favs.

Some incredible recycled Fashions on Programa Tudo É Possível in four parts(In Spanish):
I have to admit that some of these design are a bit flamboyant for my tastes, but play close attention at 3:00 for a black dress made from x-ray film and VCR tape, a plastic bottle maille dress at 5:10, and a unique tabistry top at 6:30.
Again, some of the outfits are not for me, but there are more wonderful can tabs and the use of other parts of the can at 2:10 and 4:35.
More awesomeness from Programa Tudo É Possível from 03/02/08:
Check out the fairy-like skirt at 1:45 made out of plastic bottles and the cd top at 7:30.
I was also impressed with the plastic bottlecap dress at 1:40.
Also in Spanish, Crocheted Can Tabs:
