Introducing Urban Creatures Home

As you know, our accessories from Urban Creatures are all made from recycled t-shirts. If its the right type of knit, it will curl when pulled. That's how we are able to keep our necklaces and bracelets from fraying. 

So, what do we do with a t-shirt when it does not fray? That is something we have been trying to work out for some time. We do not want to waste any fabric so here is what we have come up with...

T-shirt pillows decorated with scraps left over from our accessories.

This is our first and we look forward to making many more in lots of colors and different designs.

We applied an interfacing to the t-shirt so it will keep its shape and make it sturdy. 

Also, we are on the look out for an eco-friendly stuffing. So, if anybody out there has a suggestion please pass it along.

Hope you like as much as we do!

Ciao for now,
