I think sewing the cups together with an opening at the top would be a cool idea, and using the straps as handles? it's not very clear in my mind, but I'm sure you can imagine it

Just a thought, and it's not too terribly crafty, but you may want to consider donating them to a cancer charity in your area...what they do is when women have mastectomies, they will fill one cup, or the other with a falsie that the woman can wear until she can have reconstructive surgery....

but I am locvng those tramp lamps, cracked me up reminded me of the leg lamp in a christmas story

Ok, so we have what to do with old bras, condoms, nursing pads, and tampon art....

So... What about undies? And by that I mean the panties that I bought, but never wore because they didn't/ will never fit.  Grin I would give them away, but no one wants "used" (even though they weren't) panties!...

Here is my deal, I made a New Years Resolution that I wouldn't buy anymore, until I weeded out my extensive collection (I've got about 25 pairs in the "what do I do?" pile). They range from thong to full-butt... I'm a lil 'un, so there really isn't much fabric to work with. Styles from lacy to playful to plain. But, they were sooo cute when I bought them and I don't want to give ALL of them up!

So, what to do? Any suggestions?

I've saved a cool logo from the front of a pair of pants with the idea that I'll use it as a patch on a t-shirt or a bag or something.

You could always use all the tiny scraps to make a crazy patchwork cushion for your boudoir.

If they've got some lovely fabric or cutesey designs on them, you could disassemble the front piece from the back.  Then you could use that front panel on a pillow, purse, quilt....some cheeky fun stuff for your girlfriends.  Or you could sew up the edges and make little panty pillows.

If the fabric is lacey, you could use it to make some little sachets with some homemade potpourri inside.

You might be able to use the plain fabric pieces in a patchwork way.

With the stringy bits of the thongs, you could maybe somehow create hair bands, bracelets, etc.  This is assuming that they may not be instantly recognized as underwear bits if they are separated from the structure of the undies.

edited to add:  looks like ishtar and I were on the same page with the patchwork as we typed our replies at the same time! Smiley

How about a change purse?  Sew up the legs and put a zipper or velcro at the waist.

one of my guy friends always takes the undies that don't fit me or that i don't like and hangs them in is room and bathroom. like on his fan and bed posts and from the bathroom medicine cabinent. it's supposed to make it look like he's getting some. Roll Eyes but i love the change purse idea. it would be even cuter with like toddler undies, but then you would probly have to go buy some. i guess if you take a pair of yours and sew the legs together, it could be like one of those clutch purses. but i am so going to have to try it!

eta:: david and goliath also has a make-up bag out of undies. you could probly do this if you found some type of plastic to put on the inside.
