Action Man Recycled

Recycling gives me a feeling of smug satisfaction. I can trace this all the way back to when I used to collect empty packets to take to the playgroup for junk modelling. For years I was a keen customer of Charity Shops and kept coming across old Action Man figures in their toy boxes. Put those two together, and what have you got? Remember those awful Barbie type figures with a spare toilet roll underneath their skirts? Well, I decided to use an Action Man figure instead, and knit an outfit to cover him. The results are below – of course I had to cut their legs off first!
