In this craft-tastic Wild Card episode, Bri loves and celebrates (to bits and pieces, in some cases) the Lutheran cultural phenomenon that is the Thrivent “Live Generously” T-shirt.
These “buttery-soft” T-shirts, which typically arrive in bulk with a Thrivent Action Teams Grant, are famously comfortable. They are also notoriously abundant—an unsurprising reality given the number of service projects the average Lutheran family participates in each year.
For all those Lutheran ladies tempted to “Marie-Kondo” their old or extra “Live Generously” T-shirts, Bri here offers ten ways to upcycle them for sustainable (re)use in in both home and wardrobe.
