Don’t throw away whole shirts of expensive cottons when only the edges of the sleeves are frayed. Instead, follow this tutorial on how to DIY Jelly Rolls from Recycled Men Shirts and give them new life in your creative arts.
The first is Joy from Joy’s Jotsshots. She so soulfully explains the origins of quilting and shares how to make your own quilting making jelly rolls by using up old fabrics such as recycled men shirts. I love this idea. (It’s a great alternative to this: Recycled men shirts into cool girl dresses – a guest post that was published a little while ago.)

And here is our new party:
SHARE IT linky party #21
As always, have fun, bring a friend, check out others, and it would be nice if you’d link back to the party. A link in your post will do. No items for sale/linky party posts. The ideas is to share our DIY/crafts, both the end results as well as the howto’s. Please don’t post anything commercial because that doesn’t match.
Just to clarify: When you link up, this means that you love for us to Pin, G+ and/or otherwise promote your wonderful photos & ideas across social media platforms and on this blog, and you are giving us permission to use your photos and ideas for this purpose. Typically, themed-features will/can be promoted on an ongoing basis. Those that are featured in next week party in the party post are typically promoted during that party week. Exceptions apply.
Thank you again for partying with us!! I appreciate you sharing your wonderful ideas. The party isn’t the same without you! Till next week!
