I have a ridiculous amount of old t-shirts I never wear. They’ve been sitting in drawers, wasting away for years, and I feel it’s time to do something about them. Problem is, so many represent memories that I don’t want to let go…but I also don’t want to wear giant unflattering shirts. I searched online for ways to make old t-shirts into something new, and here are some cool projects I found:
Projects that lose the images on the shirts: the yarn, beaded necklace, crocheted rug, and mat
Projects that maintain smaller parts of the images: the notebook, craft kit, and produce bags.
Projects that show off the main part of the t-shirt: the scarf, quilt and bags
For the shirts that I want the images, I’m thinking of the scarf and / or quilt. There’s something comforting about your memories keeping you warm… The yarn, rugs, and necklace could be an excellent use of scraps. Hopefully this gives you some ideas if you’re looking to do similar projects.
PS. This is also my first attempt at using Illustrator ever. (yeah free trial!)
