I found a really great orange t-shirt at the thrift store during my last trip and thought it would be fun to do a Before and After kind of thing. So the following is a recycled t-shirt transformation. I cut the shirt into ribbons and then crochet them into a cute little octopus. I love recycling something that yeah – had a great color but wasn’t all that cool , into something I love, love, love. Next time you are looking to recycle old clothing, or you want a cheap little craft – try your hand at a little recycling craft.
Here is my sweet little baby giving the original t-shirt a little love, yeah I don’t think you can call it recycling if you just turn the shirt over to the baby as a chew toy.
This is after sitting down with the fam and doing a little crochet as we watched a movie. I put the eyes together this morning with a little felt, embroidery floss and a couple of antique m-o-p buttons.
