Terrific Thrifty Tote

RUDE [Karen] has been collecting shirts to use the front panels as cushion backs.

By utilizing the fronts of the shirts it saves on buying zips and the labour involved in inserting them.

I was inspired to use the shirt collars when I was introduced to the book Cut Up Couture by Koko Yamase.

Imagine x14 secondhand shirts anywhere between $3.00 and $6.00 AUD then this project gets a bit costly to make.

Sourcing my shirts from Tip Shops cost next to nothing, except for my time and labour.
