Just started a re-fashion project with the kids in class, so I made this as an example of what they could do. It's an old skull tee of my step dads with seams from old jeans as the handles and some old upholstery fabric for the lining.



 

I also picked out one to the skulls and embroidered around it to echo the red lining.

Excellent bit of repurposing, that's getting a 'this rocks' from me Smiley  Recycle crafts are very close to my heart so I love seeing what people make from repurposed materials, love it!
