I drove up to Austin this morning to go to the Don’t Shop, Swap event.
There were stacks and stacks of clothes, brought by many. They were sorted into groups (mens pants, womens tops, girls, boys, etc)
I brought some jeans and a tube top i never wore. I picked up a brown paper bag and found some of the most amazing items. See Below…
They had a display that said, “Make a T-shirt tote bag!” So I did.
I picked out my shirt. Diane cut off the arms and collar.
Then she sewed the bottom shut and hemmed the arm holes and “collar.”
And There is my T-shirt tote bag!!
They also had someone silk screening images on shirts, so i had her silk screen on my new tote bag.
I love my new t-shirt tote bag, i can’t wait to use it. I might make more t-shirt tote bags!!
They also had a station where you could alter your new garments or put a patch on them!
I wonder why I have NEVER heard of a swap like this before? This makes total sense, bring clothes you don’t want and take items you will use!
