[display_name id=”1″]It’s patched together almost as normal. Make a slightly larger seam allowance (about 3/4″ to 1″ instead of the customary 1/2″) and put the seamed side on the outside. Doubleseam everything! Carefully unravel the edges by pulling out the crosswise threads down to a certain point. Leave about 1/8″ to 3/16″ solid. Some folks also run a line of Fray-Chek along all the seams on the back, for a little added “insurance.”
I am looking for Craft ideas for old dress shirts.?I would really like a sewing pattern for a purse. Or if you have other uses let me know.

[display_name id=”1″]Just sew together 4×4 inch squares with some of the most vibrant patterns you have. Do something simple like
make the front/back 3 rows of 3 squares
sides 3 rows of 1 sq
bottom 3 squares
I did this with flannel and made a rag quilt purse (seams on the outside and then cut into small slits) and it was very cute. But dress shirts would not rag up well. It would be nice to just make a simple quilt. My husband’s aunt made him a quilt for our wedding with all of his grandma’s (who passed away) old blouses, and it brought him to tears! It would be a good keepsake to give to your own children someday.
What are some good uses for old clothing that is not fit to wear anymore like crafts or what?I have a lot clothing that isn’t nice enough to give away but I hate wasting things other then rags is there anything they are good for? I already cut off buttons.Thanks.

[display_name id=”1″]You can use them to make a quilt, pillows, a purse, toys, rugs etc. Just use the cloth from the clothing in place of buying the fabric in the store. Check out sites online that have “Fabric Crafts” and you should find plenty of ideas. I have seen adorable purses that you can make out of denim jeans and blouses and shirts. Have Fun! =)S.S.
