|With four boys, I have many T-shirts from various sports teams or clubs that they have belonged to, most with our last name printed on the back, that are too small.
I have not wanted to depart with these shirts for sentimental reasons, and the fact that I don't want to donate something with out last name plastered on the back side. Last week, I came up with a solution. I cut the t-shirt ribbing from the shirts, to use on future t-shirts that I am/will be making. It's all very nice quality, and now I have a selection of colors to coordinate with many fabrics that I have in my stash.
For the imprinted last name, I've used that to hand sew inside tote bags, gym bags for easier identification. I feel great about reusing the ribbing, and my new t-shirt reminds me of that soccer team that one of them played on in fifth grade. All of those old t-shirts are being put to good use, and the closets are much cleaner without the clutter!
