Stephanie shows those of us who suffer from sewphobia how to make napkins—and you won't need a machine or a needle! Over at Re-nest, we're also coming around to the change of season. We're used to seeing fall as the beginning of the end, but Trent encourages us to think about the beginning of the school year as an opportunity to establish some new green habits. We spot a stylish new prefab doghouse in the style of Michelle Kaufmann, and, for those of us who can't have pets at home, we review a charity that gives needy people livestock of their own.

Two other posts of note to the yardless: first, we need your advice on clotheslines in the city. If you don't have a yard of your own, have you managed to wrangle a spot to dry clothes outdoors? Second, have you seen these shared composting facilities in city parks? As always, links after the jump...



Composting in public parks
—completely brilliant! Have you seen this outside of New York City?



A prefab dog house... a great idea, or completely ridiculous? Either way, we like the design...



Apartment dweller Stacy is looking for a spot she can co-opt for a clothesline. Can you offer her advice?



Here's a list of ways to turn a new, green leaf this fall.
