15 Ways to Repurpose or Restyle T-Shirts
When it comes to old T-shirts, you probably have a bunch laying around, but you aren’t sure what to use them for. Now you will have a bunch of creative ideas to try for your next upcycling project!
- It’s best to use old or at least washed t-shirts for these projects. Buying brand new unwashed t-shirts are going to be a little stiff and may not give you the ultimate result.
- Save your kiddo’s t-shirts and make them something special with their old shirts. They will love it.
- If you don’t have a bunch of old T-shirts laying around, hit a thrift store or yard sale. You can get them for really cheap.
- You can dye the fabric of the shirts to match the color and style you are looking for.
