There's a book called Tease, which is all about reconstructing t-shirts. And something I remember seeing for using the tshirt sleeves is using them to make sachets. Just fill with stuffing and something that smells good, and stuff them in drawers, or in shoes.

New to this thread, but thinking about joining this destash-along. I love the idea Smiley

For the sleeves from t-shirts. Cut them off the shirt as is, turn them inside out, sew up the raw edge. Make a small cut into hemmed portion of the t-shirt on either side of the side seam. Add a draw string (ribbon, string, braided yarn, t-shirt strip etc).

They make great first aid kits, make-up bags, goody bags, toy bags, or I like to use them for carrying around small craft projects that I can do while waiting at the dr. or anywhere else.

Can also be used to organize the craft room.

They are also good for using in kids crafts. Let them paint them, tie-dye them, or do whatever else they might want to do to them.

Adult t-shirt sleeves make cute super hero masks.

Ok, I decided I am in. Is there anything I need to do other then post completed stash busting projects once a month?

More mitts! I'm obsessed. I need action shots.

My niece was not enthusiastic about modeling for me.


This cowl is from baby blanket yarn. It is SO soft and pillowy! It's meant for an adult, but it's adorable on her. Cheesy


And my March-themed item! I actually went with the theme for once. Argyle (loooove argyle) and "green!" I love making these coffee cozies.

I've also got a bag cut out and ready to be sewn in the same argyle flannel and an organic cotton t-shirt.


With all the t-shirt scarves and bags i make using t-shirts... i've got tons of t-shirt material. All from the armpits up. I definitely have plans for the sleeves at some point. And i want to look into making t-shirt yarn out of the small scraps.

Mitts are addicting indeed.  I've got a pair on the needles right now. Yours look great, and I really like the cup cozy, too.

Wonderful projects, bananaleg!  I never thought of using baby yarn for cowls...I bet it is very soft and luxurious!

The cozies are so much fun...are you using hairbands for the elastic?  I was asking in another thread where one gets colored elastic and I think she said it was a hairband!

Thanks!
Alwaysinmyroom - Yeah, I use hairbands! I bought a pack of them a couple years back and then got a pixie cut not long after, so they'd just been sitting around not being used.

Ooh Ooh Ooh! Cute! I like that, the ric rac makes it.

Ok, I finally got into the basement and does this happen to you too, it's been so long since I saw the stuff I have binned down there that I forget what in the heck I was ever going to do with it in the first place. Seriously, TONS of fabric, I mean tote after tote after tote. I can't believe what I have stashed. It would take me 2 lifetimes to get through it all and I could have sworn that I majorly destashed before we moved in here. I'm glad I can't remember what all I had before because even this much is embarrassing.
I've got 4 piles going:
-donations
-yard sale
-mending
-keep for crafting
and I'm toying with the idea of making up a box for givers and needers. And there might be a craft supply swap happening in town here soon too, very handy that Cheesy.
I sold another piece of furniture today on kijiji as well. I feel so great about that.

Maybe I'll be able to actually craft something by next week, I'm really hoping so.
