Would you believe if I told you this was an L-size formal shirt about an hour before this pic was taken. This is what I did to my hubby;s shirt that was rendered nearly out of use thanks to an ink stain,
I removed teh sleeves and marked the sleeves to be cut, based on my formal shirt of size S
I wanted to get rid of the part with the stain, so decided to cut about 4 inches as shown above
I joined the remaining bottom part of the shirt with the top, while adjusting the extra cloth as tiny gatherings...both in front and back. I did not remove the side stitches and this saved me a lot of stitching and finishing glitches.
I was very happy with the end result, would love to hear from you after you do your version :)

These are extremely easy to make, easier than quilling I would say.
Fold reused paper into tiny strips across the length and breadth as shown. Use the length-wise strip as an anchor and paste the breath-wise ones to it to for the frame of your placemat.
Paint it to match your decor.

I made this mini carom board using Amazon Packaging material and a few bottle caps.
This is how the back side looks like you can tape it up to give the board a sturdy base.
This is now the board would finally look like, you can add the lines and center markings to make it look more real. Before I could take pictures of those, mine was out for use, and an overly excited toddler ended up tearing it up in the very first match :(
