Ornament 1 for my upcycled clothes advent calendar!
I took an old kids t-shirt:
Cut off the fabric on the sleeves - and trimmed off the seams:
Pinned the 2 pieces right sides together and roughly drew the outline of a Christmas tree:
Then cut it out:
Stitched around the edges - leaving a small gap to turn out:
Not forgetting to put a little loop of ribbon folded in the top before I stitched!!
Then trimmed the edges and corners,
Turned it right sides out - and stuffed it with the seams from the t-shirt sleeves - cut into small pieces!
Hand stitched the opening closed:
And ornament one is ready to hang!
Through the rest of November - I'll be posting more ornaments as I make them from various upcycled materials and things!
