    Thanks for the great project. I featured this today on Creative Green Living

  2. LOVE it! I’d have to look elsewhere for sleeves though – my hubby always makes that area wear out first!!!

  3. What a great idea! Goodwill probably has an awesome selection of cheap shirts if you don’t want to cut up one from your hubby’s own closet.
