Today’s post is bittersweet… It’s sweet because we LOVE these guest posts from Jenelle and adore what she creates with reclaimed materials + Pellon® products. It’s bitter because it’s our last week of the Retread Your Threads series and we’re a little sad to see it go! We hope you enjoy this last project from Jenelle and encourage you to visit her at TrashN2Tees for more projects & inspiration.

Spring has finally sprung, and I’ve been trying to find some quick and easy ways to inject a splash of funk & color to my wardrobe. Today’s project, the woven t-shirt cuff bracelet, will do just that. It can be modified in a few different ways so I encourage you to experiment with it and have fun. Be sure to share your upcycled designs with us using hashtag #retreadyourthreads we’ll be featuring your projects right here later this week!
Pellon® 805 Wonder-Under®
Rotary Cutter & Ruler
Thread & Needle (or Sewing Machine)
Optional: Button or snaps for closure
It’s been a pleasure to join Pellon® for Earth Month and I’m grateful for the opportunity to not only educate you about textile and clothing waste but also inspire you to find creative ways to reuse, re-purpose, and recreate with clothing through the Retread Your Threads series. I believe that all waste has value and would love for you to join me in my movement to change the way we consume and create. Find out how by visiting me at www.trashn2tees.com and www.createchangemovement.com Have you learned something new, been inspired to upcycle something old, or have a juicy question? Leave a comment below and let’s continue this conversation.

About Jenelle: (in her words)
Hi! I’m Jenelle. Though these days I am most frequently referred to as Mommy, I used to hold such titles as President, Waitress, College Student, Mud Bog Racer, and I even donned a big furry cat suit in high school as Suzy Stateliner- the school mascot! Between crushing cars with Monster Jam trucks, judging silly dance contests, and those other less fun household chores… I rescue clothing and textiles from our landfills. I’ve been called a recycling and repurposing revolutionary. I am here to not only encourage and inspire you to consume less and recycle more but to transform discarded materials into wearable, practical, fun, personalized and stylish works of art. When we find creative ways to repurpose what we no longer need we can inject color, texture, personality, and wonder into our lives and communities. You can find out more about my commitment by visiting www.trashn2tees.com.
