May 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am PDT

What can you make from an old t-shirt? Lots of great upcycled projects!

Join Make: author Kathy Ceceri  at 1pm Eastern/10am PDT to find out what makes t-shirts stretchy and strong, and see how to turn a retired wearable into a no-sew shopping tote. It’s just one of the projects from Kathy’s book Fabric and Fiber Inventions.

  • old t-shirt that you don’t mind cutting up
  • scissors (or rotary fabric cutter for older kids and teens)
  • Optional:
    • masking tape
    • ruler
    • pen
    • pony beads or other beads with a large-ish hole
    • a bamboo skewer, skinny screwdriver, ballpoint pen cap, or other stick-type object to push fabric through the bead holes
