I have to admit, I don't like to get rid of old clothes that I like- you know, the ones that "shrink" and they don't fit anymore. Instead of throwing them away, I put them into a box out in the garage waiting for the day that I get inspired to "make" something out of them.
A couple of years ago I had bought a nice frame that had burlap in it and have been looking for a photo of my family to put in it. I don't know where the family photo went, so I decided to put something else into the frame. Not really knowing what I wanted, I started with some designer paper and then I remembered the fall shirt that doesn't fit me anymore. I ironed some fusible transfer paper onto the back and cut out the tree area. Then I mounted it onto brown cardstock and stitched it down with my machine.
Then I added some stamped words and leaves to complete the project. I love how it came out.
Here it is hanging in my hallway. I love how it looks!
Have you ever made a project out of your old clothes? How did it turn out?
