T-Shirt Dishrags

Standard

Flashback!

I’ll be posting some things I’ve made over the last few years that used to be on my old blog. That blog is lost forever now so the pics are moving here!

 I made a lot of these dishrags from t-shirt scraps. Red was a mistake though because it bled all over for the first few weeks it was in use. The other colors performed much better! These are double sided with pin-tucked centers. The tucks create ridges for scrubbing. 😀

 I made a bunch of these pretty totes for my mother out of an old sheet. I incorporated the decorative lace trim of the sheet in the design and got about 6 bags from it.

Black Satin Baby Slippers

Standard

These worked up fast but turned out a bit wonky. I think I may have worked too fast. 😀 And these are so tiny! The other booties posted were 6 months size and these are newborn. I put a penny in the picture so you can see how small and cute they are!

I got the pattern here: http://www.maked.ca/tutorials.html

 If you cut open your old athletic socks, trim to squares or rectangles and sew 4 pieces together you’ll get some very useful cleaning cloths out of them! These were made with hidden seams and top-stitched to control lint. And they work great!

 These are the window quilts I made for the kids’ room from old sheets, blankets and t-shirts:
