I figured out what I am going to make my grandma for Christmas. A tarn (t-shirt yarn) walker tote. The pattern is by Cindy at myrecyclebags.com. Her current walker bag is a little to light for her liking, and she would like something with more weight to it. The first t-shirt that I cut was not good. I forgot that shirts with side seams do not make good tarn. I have 4 shirts that are tarn worthy, the light blue above, light gray, a medium gray (below), and black. The tote is going to be mainly light blue because that was an extra large t-shirt thus it has more yardage. I am thinking that the black is to bold, so I might use the medium gray as a stripe.
Last night I started a new project that will be a Christmas present for my mom. I won't be posting any pictures of it until after Christmas though. Both of these Christmas presents fit into Stash Busting September.
