Hey guys! If you remember from my previous post on Washing-thon, you would have known about Panasonic Eco Crafts Workshop last Saturday at City Square Mall.
The workshop’s agenda is pretty simple – reuse what we can’t use.
Things like old clothing could easily be remade into useful tools with a little creativity. Guess what have we made with all the old t-shirts?
All you need is a pair of scissors and fabric glue. You can also prepare some pretty accessories like lace or buttons for decorations but of course, for eco-friendly purposes, remember to dig out all the unused but pretty things in the cupboard instead of buying new ones. ^^
How to make a T-shirt Coaster?
1. Cut 3 strips from one of your unwanted t-shirts.
2. Braid them like how you would braid hair (it would be easier for girls but if you are a good papa who has a super cute daughter, I think you will be able to succeed in this. HEE!)
3. Remember to drop some fabric glue as and when you roll them up.
4. TA-DA~~~ AN ECO-FRIENDLY T-SHIRT COASTER IS DONE!
Still think you can’t do it? Oh please, even 5-year-old kids know how to do it.
Busy busy busy~ Lalalala~
The kids are so cute when they are focused. :3
TA-DA~ My coaster that is in used. WAHAHAHA.
Oh, and we made a t-shirt bag and a sock sachet from old t-shirts and socks too! My sachet is too ugly so here’s a picture of my pretty bag only! STRIPS ARE AWESOME, JUST LIKE BEING ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY IS AWESOME TOO!
