Repurposing Men's Shirts

Instructor: Leslee Montgomery


What can be done with a man’s shirt?
In this class we will be exploring this question. I will present a trunk show of the ongoing results of this challenge. In addition I will be brainstorming with students to start them down the repurposing road.

Supply List:

    If students want to start on a piece in class:
  • Thrift store men’s shirt. Collar should be close to fitting.
  • Sewing Kit.
  • Scissors, seam ripper, thread & needles, fabric marker.
  • Tape measure, ruler pins.
  • Complementing fabric, approximately 1 yard total.
  • Buttons & beads (although these are added last and probably not used in class).
