I am also on a limited budget during the month of August but I do have a big pile of t-shirts that our good family friend, Chris, (check out his photography, he is incredible) mailed to me. I mentioned how much I enjoyed transforming an old t-shirt so he found some funny old shirts that he wanted to clean out and mailed them to me to get crafty with. I love to reuse something that may otherwise end up in a landfill because I am so
I have a bunch of Pins that I have been wanting to try and many of them are 'no sew' so they ended up being the perfect short projects for Sunday afternoon naptime. I don't think any of them took more than 30 minutes to create. I attached links to give credit to the original posters of these crafts.
Here is what I created....
A No-Sew Necklace Scarf
A Ruffle Scarf For Me and My Pint-Sized Homegirl
This ruffle scarf was really easy and puts your cutting skills to the test. The tutorial video is here. I am in love with this scarf and can't wait for fall to show it off. :-) The batman picture on the front of the shirt was saved and put away for later. I have an idea for that as well.
A Super-Awesome Super-Hero Cape
A t-shirt makes a great super-hero cape. I added some stick on velcro that I had in my sewing box at the neck and Little Guy was ready to go. Here is the tutorial.
A ball of yarn from the bottom of one shirt, even Fred the wonder cat was excited about it. I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet. Maybe a small crochet project, gift it to my mother-in-law and let her work her magic, or a gift for Fred to do with as he pleases. Here is the tutorial.
I still have half of the shirts in my stash left, graphics clipped from the shirts squirreled away for later, and more ideas to left to complete. Maybe I will post another No Sew Sunday soon.
