Using what we have
When opening the boxes this morning I found some t shirts that I had put aside to use for teaching.
I decided many years ago to never buy new fabric again. There is so much that we have at home and if we set our minds to it creatively there are many products that can be made from used t shirts that would normally end up in the rag bag.
