Second Chance T-Shirt Gifts – Part Two
Make a Christmas Stocking from a T-shirt and more! T-shirts, we all have them. Whether from schools, vacations, concerts, sport events, or charitable causes, T-shirts hold memories usually stored in a drawer. Mary Mulari, our recycling expert, is here to encourage you to give those T-shirts a second chance and create unique gifts while renewing memories.
On today’s episode of Sewing With Nancy, Mary shares a few fantastic projects that preserve memories and recycle treasured souvenirs. This is part-two of the series. Watch Second Chance T-Shirt Gifts Part One online today or purchase Mary’s Second Chance T-Shirt Gifts Pattern and DVD at Nancy’s Notions.
On Second Chance T-Shirts Part Two, we’ll create personalized gifts from special T-shirts, which is easier than you might think. For example, turn a favorite T-shirt into a pillow with a few easy steps. Add pockets to hold a child’s favorite storybook or small toy. Then stuff and enjoy.
Give a favorite T-shirt a second chance by transforming it into a tote. This easy project takes advantage of the features of knit fabrics—no-fray edges—so the simplest of sewing techniques are used. Parts of another T-shirt give the handle area extra support plus a splash of color. Watch this Sewing With Nancy program online, now.
T-Shirt Santa Stocking
Make Christmas stockings from T-shirts to display in December from notable T-shirts. Choose T-shirt designs that relate to each member of the family or guests. The creative stocking collection is sure to spark conversations. See how easy they are to make on today’s episode.
Here’s another idea—Add a festive highlight to family gatherings with a banner of reversible pennants. Choose T-shirt designs for each occasion or to represent family members. The back of each pennant is chalkboard fabric, providing space for a message.
Gloves Fit to a Tee
With a two-way stretch T-shirt knit, you can make your own gloves for special occasions, costumes, or lightweight warmth. Add a pocket for your phone or other essentials and your gloves will have flair and practicality at the same time.
T-Time Toddler Bib
Take a colorful pair of T-shirts and make a practical, useful gift for a toddler. Maybe the T-shirts represent the mom or dad’s favorite sport, college, or hobby. The two-sided bib is a popular gift that can showcase the family legacy. Watch online.
