Sequined T-Shirt Gift Bag and Fix for a hole in a Tee

Standard

Another gift bag I made from a couple of t-shirt scraps. I made a quick ribbon from my scrap box. This is a single layer bag but I think from now on I’ll be doubling up when I use tees for gift bags. The extra layer will support large/heavier gifts and prevent a lot of the stretching that happens with knits. It will also help the bag last longer in its second life. :D

I also did a quick(hence the messiness)reverse applique fix for a big hole in the front center of one of my son’s tees. It’s a bit sloppy but it works.

Training Undies

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!

 A few years ago I experimented with different styles of training underwear for my daughter. Most of them were a bit too small or too tight or too loose around the legs for her but the striped one was a winner. She continued to wear it even after training. :) These were made from old t-shirts with a patch of terry inside to catch leaks:

T-Shirt Dishrags

 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. :D

Window Quilts

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

Toy Bowling Set Bag

Standard

This project was pretty far down on my list of priorities but this morning I wanted a quick project to do that didn’t have to be anywhere near perfect.
I used the bottom of an old cotton blend t-shirt, using the bottom hem as a drawstring casing, scrap fabric, cheapo buttons and beads, and an old salvaged shoelace.
Very easy and much neater for the set! I did see a bag like this somewhere online but can’t remember where to give the credit, sorry!

The Finished Stack of Cloth Diapers

Standard

Here are the finished 9 diapers in Rusty Wallace, floral, Matt Kenseth, surfing, tie-dyed and Penn State prints. They turned out so cute but they are quite small. I doubt they’ll last the baby’s first two months before they’re outgrown.
