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.
From the body of a well worn tie dyed t shirt
Which when stretched out
Creates a cowl infinity scarf.
From the neckline
Threaded onto t shirt strips
Creating a fabric necklace.
From the body of the t shirt - t shirt yarn
Which can be used to create a multitude of products from headbands
to t shirt necklaces
Even the smallest of pieces can be used to create
Once you have techniques you will look at your used t shirts at home with different eyes.
