T Shirt ideas

This idea of customising old white tank tops with scraps of whatever I have lying around has been an interesting journey. This tank top got some of the left-over knicker elastic from the headbands I made a few months back.

Much like with the green wool applique a few posts back, I placed the black elastic on the front of the T-shirt, pinned it as best I could and then zig-zag sewed over it to “set” the applique item. I have to admit that the elastic bunched a bit and I am not so sure about this result.

But hey, that’s how you learn.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
