Learn how to reuse your old T-shirts. As the flowers bloom and the weather turns warm, kids grab their comfortable ol’ tees. Yet, some of those tees may not be your best choice to wear because they are:
- Too small
- Not in style
Before you toss out your old T-shirts, consider what you can do with them, whether it’s wearing them in new ways, creating new uses for them, or making sentimental keepsakes.
Here are six of my favorite ways to re-purpose old T-shirts:
1. Make a pair of shorts
Make an extra-large T-shirt handed down from your older (and bigger) brother or sister into a new piece of clothing: shorts! Yes, a little sewing is required, but the results are definitely worth it.
All you need is an extra-large T-shirt, scissors, chalk, and a sewing machine. The design on the front of the shirt ends up being on the side of one leg of the shorts. There are many steps, but it’s pretty simple, so watch to find out how.
2. Cut the shirt
If you’re not really into the design or style of the shirt anymore, but still like the color, grab a pair of scissors and transform your tee. There are a lot of options.
Just because the shirt has some spots doesn’t mean you have to throw it away...
