I came across a pile of T-shirts in my sewing room the other day. I’d forgotten about them – I left them there because I wasn’t wearing them any more. I don’t know about you, but I usually drop something down the front of them, it leaves a grease spot that never washes out, then they’re relegated to wearing underneath sweaters!
It was an easy matter to get out my nice sharp sewing shears, cut off the sleeves and scoop out the neckline (or not if it was already deep enough), hem the raw edges and close up the bottom. It takes all of ten minutes to make a new shopping bag.
Not only that, but I was left with a few sleeves and other pieces of soft cloth which went into the rag bag in the utility room for clean-up jobs.
