Old, retired t-shirts had been accruing in a snowboard travel bag that was in the attic for years. Faced with the dilemma of throwing the shirts away, I opted to recycle them into a surf board bag. Though they were hacked up in the process, at least part of their print is still visible and the memories somewhere in the threads. I cut the shirts into squares, and then stitched the squares together to complete a 2 x 4 length of cloth that was backed by black fabric with orange polka dots from the craft store. Two individual sections were made like this before being sewn together. To allow the board bag to close I stitched two strings on either side of the bag’s opening. Here is a video of the project. Thank you for watching.
