We've all done it haven't we?
A couple of leftover drops of chlorine bleach
is mistakenly left on the edge of the washing machine.
A t-shirt happens to touch the bleach as it goes into
the washer and you get instant spots!
I hear you saying "I only use color safe bleach"
but sometimes you just have the old fashioned
Good/Evil Chlorine Bleach on hand when
laundry day rolls around.
Don't throw that t-shirt away
or make rags out of it.
(okay I have to admit I did wear it for a
couple months around the house)
But then I saw this cute craft idea on
none other than Pinterest...
you know, that time-sucking site that gives
you all kinds of ideas to save for later
that you don't have time to use.
So here's one of the ideas I saved on
1. Spread your t-shirt out nicely on a table
or an ironing board. Cut straight across
under the sleeve area.
2. Use your scissors to cut fringe. Make
the fringe how ever long you want.
Mine was about 4" long with each
piece of fringe about 1/2" wide.
3. Pull each piece of fringe so that
it kind of curls into itself.
At this point you could add beads
here and there on the pieces of fringe
and tie a knot to keep them from
You have a really interesting
fringed scarf to drape around
AND you can say you actually used one
of those saved ideas from Pinterest!
Hope you liked this up-cycle.
How has bleach touched your life?
Have a grand week friends!
