[ARCHIVED] Upcycling Project: T-shirt & Fabric Crafts

Upcycle Project, T-shirt and Fabric Crafts

Adult Crafts is teaming up with our Technical Service Librarian, Leah, to bring you The Upcycle Project!


This session will be all about how you can use t-shirts and other fabric/textile items to make different crafts.

Here’s what we’ll be doing, and what supplies you’ll need:


No-Sew T-shirt Bag

- T-shirt of choice (the larger the shirt, the bigger the bag)


Sock Pumpkin

- Socks. Tall socks generally work best, and you’ll be able to get two small pumpkins from them.

- Branches/twigs to use as stem


Toilet Paper Pumpkins

- Any fabric textile of choice (t-shirt, old blouse/shirt, pillowcase, etc).

You want to get an 18" square worth of material.

- Branches/twigs to use as stem

Optional:

- Roll of toilet paper & and 10-15 grocery store bags

- Embroidery Thread to match/contrast your pumpkin


Sewn & Gathered Pumpkin

- Any fabric textile of choice (t-shirt, old blouse/shirt, pillowcase, etc).
You want enough to make a rectangle 10" x 20" (or a smaller 1:2 ratios worth, 5" x 10", 7" x 14") worth of material.

- Branches/twigs to use as stem

Optional:

- Hand sewing needle & thread

 Embroidery Thread to match/contrast your pumpkin


All other supplies needed will be provided, but we highly encourage you to bring your own scissors!
