5 Awesome T-Shirt Sleeve Crafts
T-shirt crafts often leave the sleeves behind. Save those sleeves for one of these awesome t-shirt sleeve crafts!
1. Cloth Napkins
These are sleeves you actually want your kiddos to wipe their noses and mouths with. Put out a basket of new ones and a basket for dirty ones on the kitchen table. Or you can use them as a hankie too and carry one in your purse instead of tissues.
These are perfect for marbles, dinosaurs, Legos, or any little “do-dads” that kids carry nowadays. Put a slit in the finished hem for a string, sew the other side closed and you are done!
3. Dryer Sachets
Make two sachets out of one sleeve. Fill them with lavender and flax seed (1:1 ratio), sew them up and toss them in the dryer instead of dryer sheets. Or you can put one in a drawer to make your clothes smell pretty.
4. Shoe Trees
Just like the dryer sachets, you can make two pouches out of one sleeve to make shoe trees. Fill them with lavender and flax seeds and put them in your shoes to keep them in shape and to help deodorize them. You’ll have the best smelling feet on the block!
5. Golf Club Covers
To make these, sew the longer side of your t-shirt sleeve diagonally and voila, you can fit them over golf clubs. Stencil the club size number on the outside or use a specific color for a specific size.
