Do you have a t shirt that you love, but it doesn’t fit anymore or has gone out of style? Give it a second life by making something else out of it.
Knits are “sew” fun work with and there are a lot of things you can make especially children’s clothing. Now days, little kids t shirts are usually cheaper just to buy already made, than to purchase a pattern and fabric, not to mention the time involved. But if you have the fabric already and basic patterns are cheap and usually accessible on the internet, then you are set.
Have you priced good quality interlock knits lately? They are not cheap and the selection is usually poor.
