Not only do I have a chest of drawers full of scrap fabric, I also have an old wicker chest full of larger pieces of fabric that I'm not sure what to do with. They are either ugly or an odd texture or old clothes or just don't really have an obvious purpose for any of my current projects. Think upholstery samples, worn out clothes, old curtains, that sort of thing.
So yesterday I set myself the challenge of coming up with one or two projects using an old pair of my jean's and one of Ben's unwanted shirts.
I've been meaning to try this shirt-to-dress idea for ages...and I've finally done it!
To find out how to transform an old shirt into a pretty little frock you can check out my tutorial here.
And I used a small square of my old jeans, along with some other fabric and wadding, to make this pot holder / oven mitt. You can see what I did here.
