The Versatile T shirt
Updated: Mar 17
Who doesn't have lots of t shirts in their closet. When it comes to that change of season closet sorting I always find myself with a pile of t shirts that I won't wear anymore. I keep some for cleaning and still have a pile. What can I do with them. The possibilities are endless and the t shirt can be used in its entirety.
The shirt gets dismantled into different sized pieces. The bulk of the body is cut into a tube which can be used as a t shirt waistband for skirts or pants.
The tube can also be cut into t shirt yarn which can be used for finger knitting, mats or tshirt necklaces.
Finger knitting which can be used to make a necklace or a scarf.
From the other pieces I cut circles which can be made into yoyos or fabric flowers.
The yoyos can be used to create art.
Or to make jewelry
The neckline can be made into a necklace.
And the small pieces can be made into t shirt jewelry.
The tiny remnants left over are used for pillow and doll stuffing.
The entire t shirt gets a second life.
