During November we showed the women at our partner agencies how to turn worn t-shirts into stylish neck ware! We taught them how to cut t-shirts to create many thin loops of fabric. Then we showed them how to use a “gathering knot” to bind all of their colorful loops together to create a one-of-a-kind scarf.

Materials used: Worn T-shirts

Skills taught: Cutting fabric, tying knots

A participant from St. Patrick’s Center learned “that all scraps are good for later use and it’s a fun way to pass the time.”
