    Hi Manjula,

    What is "throws" and how to make it. And how can we make letter holders?

    hi,
    I too face a great problem in disposing the old but untorn clothes especially gents garments.
    For ladies garments -- I have a suggestion. Make long stips of these clothes..... sarees can be cut lengthwise into 2 or 3. Now take 3 stips & then plait them as long as possible and make a spiral colourful rug by stitching the adjacent sides.Bow
    hope you like the idea:idea

    hmm... If you have time and patience, may I suggest something. :)

    You can make awesome bags out of it. (Corduroy or Denim pants though) How to Make a Corduroy Pants Purse - wikiHow

    In chennai, we tried for someplace to give away old clothes..good ones,but no one is willing to come and take them.We are unable to deliver as we have our own problems of transport etc.When we call they express willingness to take them, but no initiative to colloect.Any place?Whole bunch of churidars,pants,shirts sarees etc.,etc.

    My Husband is having a large collection of shirts... most of thm he wont wear. I just made square pieces out of it.. hand-stitched the edges and use thm as kitchen-towels. I also use thm to clean the floor too. My hubby gets bit sad whn he sees this Big Laugh

    Whn my baby was born i used old cotton sarees to make cloth diapers for her... they r easy to wash and get dried soon unlike towels.
