Do you have a favourite t-shirt that is getting too small? You could turn it into a scarf so that your child (or yourself) can enjoy it for longer. Just cut off the upper part and the bottom seam and then cut fringes into the top and the bottom part. You can use it like that or you can fold it in the middle and sew it together with the zig-zag stitch of your sewing machine. On top you can decorate it with pompoms or embroidery or whatever you like. This only works for t-shirt material as it won't fray.
I'm a German expat based in Hong Kong since March 2007. I love interior design, crafting, food, yoga, hiking, travelling, arts and painting and browsing through magazines in the sun shine or on my sofa. This is my home and living blog. Home means my husband, my daughter and my twin boys. I put my little DIY projects here and all the other things that cross my daily life. Enjoy!
