Shirts

Old Shirts

A dozen shirts, some of my L&M's old ones, some from friends & some from the local charity shops, all stripped down & ready to cut and lots of lovely buttons.

Lots of lovely material that go well together there. What's the plan?
Have you got a big button tin too?

Are you going to make some quilts? Have a look at bonnie hunters blog and her free patters that all come with instructions, I've used her designs and they are easy

FiD, I'm making a quilt & no I don't have a big button tin, I have 3 celebration tubs full of buttons, lol!

Froogs, I'll take a look at that, thanks.

Love men's shirts, I have a small case full tucked away for a memory quilt next year. When I buy shirts I look for the XXXL for all the extra fabric, they cost just the same as Small in the CS.
