101 re-uses for: old clothes

We frequently get asked what to do with old clothes: socks, jeans, sweaters, mittens, intimates, shoes, t-shirts, you-name-it.

We've patched the knees of our kids' worn out pants. We've darned the holes in our socks. Hope, our Eastside GreenGroup leader, made a darling tote bag from an old pair of jeans. We have one friend of a GreenGroup friend who makes rugs out of old wool socks. We've made as many sock puppets as our sock-puppet theater can handle. We've talked about local clothing re-use organizations that we particularly like. We've made t-shirt napkins. Yet, our rag bags runneth over.

What do you do with the rest of your old clothes (the clothes that are too beat up to hand down)? Surely, some creative EnviroMoms out there have some fabulous re-use ideas for old clothes.... Anyone, anyone?
