Tiffany Threadgould: Pillowcase art supply kit
On Monday we announced we’d be sharing the things that Tiffany Threadgould, author of the (awesome!) new book ReMake It! Recycling Projects From The Stuff You Usually Scrap, made, incorporating the Unconsumption logo.
Below, the second in a series of three: A pillowcase remade into an art supply kit.
To create your own pillowcase art supply kit, you’ll need a pillowcase, fabric scissors, a ruler, 48 inches of ribbon, and needle and thread or a sewing machine.
Shorten your pillowcase so it’s about 15” tall. Fold up the bottom 5”. Determine what types of art supplies you’ll keep in your kit. Now you’ll create pockets that accommodate those supplies by stitching vertical lines into the folded part of the pillowcase. Sew the center of the ribbon onto one end of the kit.
You can stencil Mr. Cart onto your kit to show off your unconsumption and reuse style. Then, your kit will be ready to make its art debut.
