This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Nest.
In this Badge Bit, you will make rags out of old clothes. (Note that this BB is part of an 8-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Jeeves List. You must complete eight Badge Bits in the Jeeves List.)
I hope the rags don't need to be hemmed or sewn the way Nicole did so wonderfully... We always just cut the shirts into squares and call it good enough. We had three t-shirts with excessively large holes in them so it was time to make them into rags.

Here are my photos for your review for the Nest - Jeeves (1) - Sand BB: Make Rags from Old Clothes
Today, my sister decided it was closet cleaning day and I decided to use some of the old clothes to make rags and finish my fabric salvage projects.
I started with two pairs of old pajama pants then also cut up two t-shirts since they were stained.
I also started with a pair of scissors then decided to break out the rotary cutting mat and straight edge.
Most of the rags are 10" x 10" with a smaller stack that are 5" by miscellaneous widths.
I made zoukin (Japanese style multi layer floor cloths) from a very old PJ top. I think I wore it through both pregnancies so the fabric was really stretched out and it also has big holes in one of the sleeves. Made it hard to get neat edges without wasting a lot, so I just roughly sewed through them on the sewing machine.
Old oversized shirt transforms into 25 napkins and a pile of rags!
