What to do with an old dress shirt?
Somehow, Mr. Jiggs grew since I married him. About two years ago, he suddenly said all his long sleeve shirts are too short in the sleeves. What? After a while I quit trying to figure it out and bought him a few new ones with longer sleeves. Then I cut a few of the sleeves off the old ones and made the shirts into short sleeve shirts. (and I have a huge stack of other shirts I have permission to use for whatever I want.)
But waste not want not, right? I didn’t throw away the parts of the sleeves I cut off. I made them into a lingerie bag. You know, the ones you can buy out of lace with a zipper in it to put things you don’t want to get ruined in the wash?
I simply cut the cuffs off the sleeves and sewed them into a tube. The opening is the buttons on the arm sleeves and that’s how i stuff things in it. It works and I’m happy i didn’t have to buy one of those things.
