When making my eco pants there are, of course, bits of the t shirts left over, sometimes quite large pieces. As one of my basic rules on in my shop is 'nothing gets wasted' I have to find a way of using these pieces.
This is, I think, the most practical use of cotton jersey, a teatowel made in the 'crazy patchwork' style, they are all approximately 28 inches or 71 cm by 18 inches or 46 cm (a picture with an A4 sheet of paper is included to give an idea of scale). I have sewn the back as well as the front of the pieces so there are all sorts of mysterious shapes within the patches, the stitching is a honeycomb stretch stitch so will not break with use and all have a stretchy edging, so quite hard wearing.
In the tradition of tea towels you could put it up on the wall as an artwork and when you need to dry the dishes take it down, a must for art students who want abstract artworks that they can dry the washing up with!
The aim of my shop is to find a way of utilising every bit of the fabric I get for something, wherever possible something with a practical use.
I am finding the two simple criteria, only fabrics that have been used for something else and use every scrap, leads me to the most interesting things!
