Rotterdam, Neth...






last time when I had a look at my fabric storage I recognised that I have more tha 260 m of fabrics! I must be crazy!!! So it was time to do someting. I made these four shirts out of remnants of my collection. I am pleased with the outcome and I will try to sell them on the next street fair.
I used a selfmade pattern

    What a great idea. I have so many remnants that are too small to make anything… but to big to throw out! I see lots of stash busting tops coming up. Thank you :)

    These are really great tee shirts. Remnants always make you more creative and these tee shirts are a credit to your creativity.
