It’s amazing to me how versital the classic T-shirt is. In the last 3 years you may have noticed a number of books about how to customize your own t-shirt which is cool, but really – I don’t think it stops there. I got fed up with the cold floors in our bathrooms and decided that what we needed was a rug. Well rugs certainly don’t come cheap, especially if you don’t really like to spend money on stuff like that anyway. So I decided to dig into my stash of old clothes, where a number of old t-shirts were waiting. Cutting one into strips I wound up with a reasonable ball of t-shirt string. And from that I created a bathroom rug, and a few birds, and a hat… well I think you get the idea. Save your t-shirts, they can be more than the shirt off your back.
This is my little supergirl, with a new rug to keep her feet warm.
This is ‘fleur’, she stands about 8″ high. She is composed of a couple of old twigs, stuffed with old sweater strips, covered with t-shirt ribbon, adorned with some embroidery.
