Repurpose or Upcycle an old T-shirt

It’s already Tuesday so that  means it’s time for another “Inspiration Tuesday”. I received a boatload of old shirts and sweaters last  week and wondered if I could do a little project with some of them. I started to Google and found some really interesting tutorials. This give me the inspiration for today’s Inspiration Tuesday. Now that it’s getting colder, you might have some old shirts that you want to get rid of. Maybe you can upcycle or repurpose them? Here are 10 tutorials I really liked:

1. Anne from Wobisobi made this gorgeous no-sew draped vest (left). Did I mention it is NO-SEW? She also has this one (right) which is slightly different.

2. Don’t want to throw out your favourite shirt but can’t wear it either? How about turning them into a pillow case? Here is a nice tutorial. I remember my mom did it for me a long time ago. I had a shirt with wolves and grew out of it but refused to get rid of the shirt. That’s when she decided to turn it into a pillow case.
