Folks, i welcome you with love and a handful of old t-shirt hacks! More than often, we have clothes that we just cannot part ways with; they come with memories. Maybe you bought that shirt with your first salary or your first love gifted that shirt to you – whatever the reason we understand that you might not want to get rid of a shirt that is a mere “piece of clothing” for others.
We can look for creative ideas to turn our old shirts into new – fun shirts. Are you with me on this?
Let’s get started.
This one is personally one of my favorite hacks to make use of my old t-shirts. All you need to do is collect all your old shirts and stitch them together to form a giant and comfortable comforter. First, you need to cut down the sleeves of the sweatshirt; next divide the shirt into 2 – front and back. Once you have cut both the sides and the sleeves of all your old shirts you can now stitch them together and the end product will surprise you.
It is going to be a classic comforter made up of all your old shirts which you would have to give away. We suggest that you either use all your black and white shirts to make your custom comforter or use multiple colors to give it a fun look.
Tie and Dye T-shirts
Tie and dye are always fun, easy and affordable. You can make use of the tie and dye tricks to transform your old shirts into new, creative shirts. All you need to do is to take an old shirt, tie it with threads in a pattern you like and pour some dye on it. Afterwards, just dunk it in a tub of water or give it around in the washing machine. The final product will blow your mind!
This is a must-try.
