Old T-shirt Turned into Art

I am a HUGE fan of Chad Eaton’s artwork and T-shirts Called Timber, which are based on lumberjacks, business men and big foot. He is such an amazing artist, I bought these shirts like 2 or three years ago, and have worn the heck out of them, they were my favorite shirts I own and would wear them every week. So I decided to place them onto canvases…. and OMG I love them! Now I will be able to enjoy my shirts for many more years to come. All you need to do it get an old shirt you love, a canvas to fit the design and then cut it out and use mod podge to put it onto the canvas. Be sure to do it patiently so that you don’t get bubbles and wrinkles under the fabric. When it’s dry, then just coat the top with a few layer of mod podge as well…. and your done!

Who is trashycrafter?

Trashy Crafter was born in July 2011 when Kim and her Mom Helen were at a local thrift store. They loved to go to thrift shops, and one day while at the thrift store they noticed hundreds of damaged and outdated books being thrown away. Some books were missing covers, some had ripped pages, and many were scribbled in with pens or crayons. No one was buying this books, so they were to be thrown out, and that broke their hearts…. So they grabbed as many books as they could and took them home. They had to do something useful with all of the books. Kim remembered that she had learned how to make paper beads by her 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Byant. So she began to experiment on how best to roll the beads, and turn them into beads. She made some bracelets and started wearing them around, they would always get compliments, so she thought, why not make some for other folks to wear and enjoy, at that moment Trashy Crafter was born!
