Deconstruction & Art

My sister turned me on to using large TicTac containers to keep earbuds in. They also make excellent containers for corralling the buttons I save when deconstructing the shirts I get at the GW clearance center 🙂

I actually like deconstructing the shirts I acquire….I know, I know! Strange, I am. Anyhoo…..I’ve got a nice pile of shirt fabric ready to pet, cut, share and admire. I’m working on getting brighter colors….not always easy because they tend not be 100% cotton. I’ve gotten to where I can tell almost by looking if the fabric is a blend 😉

We took our dog for a walk along the Metro Bike Link trail and saw these…..kind of fun, no?

Happy quilting, Cherie

  1. One of the ladies who works at Davies Manor takes all the buttons from the shirts I deconstruct for her crafting. I know I should save the cuffs, plackets, and collars but I don’t unless I need every single scrap of that particular shirt. You are so good to handle yours the way you do!!
