So, having decided to tackle the jersey/knits/old Ts/airline sleep suits tub, I started with a project we've all seen round t'internet: bottom half (ish) of an old T cut and pulled like so:
I got a liiiittle obsessed but managed to stop at four by lunch: three plain infinity loops
and a scarf/necklace with large beads leftover from my days of teaching Chinese knots.
The number three cord size holes were just right for the size strips I cut, but I put knots on either side just in case.
A too-short tank top and too-deep-a-neckline stripe T got together to make a short dress destined to go straight into the summer clothes box when we do our wardrobe changeover next weekend.
The bottom of that black tank became that bead scarf/necklace above. The sleeves of the stripe T were just right for the too-tight armholes of a work-out shirt.
Four patterns from my pattern clear out yesterday are currently matched up ready to go with a fair amount of the contents of the jersey/knits/old Ts/airline sleep suits tub (it's a biiiiig tub). Everything leftover at the end of next week goes into a sack for my pal who is area coordinator of the Girl Guides if it has been cut and to Cancer Research if it is a garment still in one piece. How's that for a self-imposed deadline?!? Sometimes you just need to have a refashioning blitz, don't you?
