Six Craftsy instructors, including me, took up the challenge to transform a T-shirt or two into something else, using their crafty wiles. Of the six, I was the only one who kept the T-shirt as a T-shirt. The other five participants took things in a completely different direction.
Click the links below to read more about what they did. (I’ve also included [non-affiliate] links to their Craftsy classes. Notice that all but me are embroidery-quilting-sewing folks! I expected other crocheters and knitters to play with the challenge.)
Linda Bratten made a laptop case.
Linda teaches Exploring Natural Machine-Quilting Motifs.
Mimi Dietrich made a classy-looking flower with her T-shirt. (She had hoped to make an entire wreath, but life got in the way.)
Beth Ferrier also teaches two Craftsy classes, Machine-Finished Hand Applique and Oh My Stars! Six Pieced Blocks. Read here about her decision to make T-shirt yarn and crochet a market bag. (I wish I’d thought of it!)
Lee Chappell Monroe thought outside the (shoe) box and made T-Shirt Shoe Bags to protect packed shoes in her luggage.
Lee, also known as May Chappell, teaches Quilt Faster: Accurate, Streamlined Piecing.
Sue teaches a machine embroidery class, In the Hoop Gifts.
Which of these pieces are you drawn to? Or would you make something completely different with a surplus T-shirt?
