back to some sewing…

indigo dyed hemp/linen shirt

cool blue shirt...

step one…. pull two nice shirts out of garbage bag on recycle day….. take home, wash, dry ,  put them away and think on them….

step two…..

turned inside out... with shirt pocket...

outside with strap made of inside material

start cutting and sewing…. it feels so good to be back to some creating after the long winter holidays…

I pull such great material and treasures out of those recycle bags and love cutting them up, usually to make bags… I can’t believe that people can throw them away so easily… the way these recycle bags are for “rags” and are not meant to be clothing donations… just “rags”….

      i would totally wear that shirt, if it wasn’t so small!!! also it had some pretty serious damage in the arm/sleeve area…

      i have found several really fabulous shirts but they are always too small to wear….and unfortunately, kayla doesn’t want to wear any of the really “cool” shirts that i find…
