I have a finished project to show you all!
Tonight I finally had a chance to work in my craft room. I tell you, every time I plan to spend huge chunks of time in there, life interferes and I don't get the time in there that I want. Wa, wa, wa ... I know, cry you a river, right?
Anyway, after everyone went to bed, I went to the room.
I started with this shirt
And yes, I did put those pieces of paper on it to cover up the name and stuff on the shirt because I'm all paranoid like that. Anyway, these are shirts I wore to work in high school. October will be my 10 year reunion. I don't know why I saved them (other than it's a family business and I always thought I might never know when I'd have to work again!). But it was time to do something with it (I couldn't very well donate a shirt with my name embroidered on it. And I cringed to throw away a perfectly good shirt). So I came up with an idea.
I planned it based on the knitting needle case I made before. But I wanted to make something for the kids to carry crayons around in. So I cut the shirt up - except I cut it a bit wrong and so had to pull out some cotton to finish it.
But now I have a crayon holder:
I have to tell you though, when I saw it all rolled up, tied and looking so cute, well, I've decided this one will be my crayon holder. One I can throw in my purse in case we are at a restaurant or something and I might need to whip out some crayons to entertain the kiddies with.
Also, I have another shirt that is exactly the same and I can cut that one up to make a second one for the kids. And this time, I'll know how to cut it the right way LOL!
