That's an easy one! Taken my oldest t-shirt, it will make good rags for the shop.

My shirt/rags BB submission:

I had a well-used shirt that was pretty thin, so I folded the sections to thicken them up.

Please see submission for turning old clothes for cloth.  I make a journal page so that I can add new information as I learn more things, track my SKiP and turn my journey into my book.

This BB was done out of necessity after my cat ate something she should not have. So the rags are not very neat, but they were immediately put to use and did what rags are supposed to do.

The two t-shirts I cut up had been waiting for a new purpose in life for some time. I'm including these pictures:
  - a before picture of the old clothing
  - an after picture of the rags made from the old clothing

Thanks!
