So, after meeting Jenelle Montilone, the author of "The Upcycled T-shirt Book," I was inspired to create something with the leftover t-shirts in my own home. I took an old work t-shirt from my husband and dyed it to color and created this cute number.
My plans are to take full advantage of this free fabric resource and look into other options she has given in her book, as well as this awesome initiative for the "Yarn Ball Project" found here.
Starting where I am, in my sewing room, I know I am making a difference. Every little bit counts and will absolutely make a world of difference for everyone now and in the future. Here is the funny thing....I had already been eying this book for sometime now. Because of the sewing classes I teach, I wanted something that was cheap or better yet free, for the group of ladies who don't have the means to buy fabric the traditional way.
