A knotty kind of project

Posted by andrea tomkins in: File under crafty|Publishing/writing/career stuff

My latest craft over at CanadianFamily.ca has very humble origins. This is what we started with… some ill-fitting and stained t-shirts that were taking up space in a small person’s tiny closet:

… which we then cut up and made into these …

T-shirt craft part two

Curious? If you want to see what this turned into I recommend you go see what we did with ‘em over here. :)

  • andrea tomkins: Maybe the black groundhogs are slowly taking over Ottawa like the black squirrels did!
  • andrea tomkins: Good gourds! ;)
  • binki: Looks like gourds.
  • Sara: We have a family of groundhogs behind our house, about six of them and one is completely black. We're in the bayshore area, so there's two!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (17) and Sarah (15). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
