There haven't been many moments to catch a breath.
But crafting must go on!
Last week my preschooler helped me turn a garbage bag of tshirts that had been headed to the dump into tarn. (Definition: tarn is upcycled tshirt yarn)
|Mommy! That's a big ball of yarn!|
I used the opportunity to have some great starter conversations with her about recycling and taking care of the Earth.
This started a spree through the house to find more tshirts. But when she brought this one to me I saw more potential than cutting it into tarn.
I had found this great free tutorial from Nap-Time Creations.
And we turned an old unwanted tshirt into these:
I love finding new life in old projects!
And I'm loving the process of learning new crafting skills as I go.
Go, be creative, and give new life to something in your house. And share your pictures. I would be thrilled to see them.
