Can you be creative with Tshirts?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Wed Nov 10, 2010 9:42 am

Other than throwing away used Tshirts or using them as rags, what other ideas could you come up with for reusing a T shirt in a new way?

Roxanna, I think you've got the idea! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I was thinking about making a carry bag from a T shirt. lol I think, if I used ones with sayings or favorite characters, the kids would really go nuts over that idea. Keep in mind, I'd be using shirts that kids either outgrew or have other reasons they aren't worn anymore.
I'd make a Harley Davidson pillow, for me. lol

Iron on transfers that could be a border? You could buy ready made ones OR make your own. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] To make your own, buy iron on transfer paper, find any picture you want off the internet and print it out on to the transfer paper. Then, iron it on to the material. If you ever decide to do this, remember.. the picture will come out backwards from what you first printed. Not a problem, if you flip it backwards, before printing.

New thought... cut out the sides and use those old T shirts as arts and crafts aprons.

I can't take credit for this ...
swiped this post from a crafting site ...


You can do so many things with t-shirts!

Dolls: they make awesome fabric for making rag dolls!
Lacy women's & girls t's: you can cut the sleeves shorter & make them smaller then crochet around the neck & sleeves.

Sachet's: make tiny pillows from the fabric & stuff with dried lavender for sachets.
Hanging sachets: make hearts that hang from ribbons with dried lavender to hang in closets.

Ribbing: use t-shirts as ribbing on cuffs of other clothes (fold over fabric & iron to make ribbing)
Scarves: dye & cut strips for fringe scarves.

Pillow cases: they make the softest pillow cases!

Summertime couch & throw pillow covers: in the summer, cut off the top part to form a tube with bottom section then take this tube & cover couch cushions to keep sweat off & keep couch clean.

Hot pads & trivets: make hot pads: fill with cloves & cinnamon to make wonderful smelling trivets.
Heating pads: make tubes then fill with rice then microwave to make "hot pads".

Eyepads: make little tube or "sunglasses shape" then fill with buckwheat for eyepads to aid sleeping.
Drawstring bags: kids can keep toys in them or store anything in them.

Glasses case: keep you sunglasses from getting scratched in tiny drawstring bag.
Crochet bag: make a bag to store 1 skein of yarn & a crochet hook or knitting needles to take on-the-go projects.

Sleeping bag storage: make a drawstring bag to store sleeping bags.
Hammock: I've seen indoor hammocks made from crocheted strips of t-shirts.

Beanbag chair: sew wedges together then tie-dye & fill with shredded foam or pellets.
Little girls ruffled t-shirt: cut strips from a t-shirt then fold in half & iron. use this to make a ruffle for adding on to the

Bottom of kids t-shirt. Also sew a ruffle on the sleeves.
Applique: make kids t-shirt from adults t, adding zig-zag appliqué.

A lot of ideas there, Jack. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The pillow is a good idea.
