Me and my daughter have just gone through her closet and got rid of all her old clothes that does not fit or is not the thing to wear when you are 13. Ended up with a big black sack full of clothes. Where I live the charity shops are extremely picky in what they will accept so 95% would not be suitable for them.
Now today while in the charity shop I came across a rug making book that among others features crochet rag rugs. so now I have taken all her clothes out of the bin and will now make a rug for her bedroom floor with them. Just cut them into strips and crochet with them one strip at a time. Thought that was a neat idea, definitely better than just throwing the clothes away.
