In addition to the tshirt totes, I am working on pants totes and clothing scrap pin cushions. The tshirt totes are currently made using only the tshirt and vintage ribbon (for the tag). Yes, and thread. =) Pin cushions are made using the shirt sleeves left over from the tshirt totes and vintage ribbon (for the tag). I am also using found buttons on each pin cushion. Pants totes feature fabric from both womens and mens pants along with fabric from my stash that complements the pants. All seams are at least triple-stitched to create a sturdy product.
All items are from a smoke free home. We do have pets – both an indoor short-haired cat and an indoor chihuahua/yorkie mix.
All clothing items are used, thus recycled and repurposed.
