Hay! I should make this to go with my "Tree Cosy", which I made out of braided muslin to cover a dead limb of my Russian olive tree. Thanks!

I think that would look great together!

Great idea! I love it! You could add some bulky beads too! Nice retro look! Put a saucer of water/birdseed in it and have hanging bird bath/feeder!

Very crafty! It's amazing how many things you can do with T-shirts. Have you tested how well they hold up in the elements yet?

I have not, but I imagine that they will be able withstand wind and rain!
