This weekend my husband and I have made a pledge to one another… a serious vow and promise that will not be broken. That promise?…
Clean our clothes closets and drawers! Ohhh, sounds romantic, yes?
Well, okay, not so romantic, but a necessity?… oh, yes! It is a promise we have made innumerable times in the past year (and never followed through), but this time we really (REALLY!) mean it!
I have no doubt that one of the most popular items that need to go will be an abnormally huge amount of t-shirts. Some will be destine for the “rag bag”, others will be donated, but did you also know that there are tons of ways to recycle t-shirts?
I discovered a site that has it all. Andy from hideyourarms.com has done all the legwork for us and has nearly EVERY way – most with tutorials and instructions! Old t-shirts can be turned into amazing new products with real usefulness:
Think new shirts, reusable bags, yoga pants, throw pillows, camis, scarves, carrying cases, blankets, skirts… the list goes on and on.
While you may not be looking to make a ninja hood (although Halloween is around the corner!) or decide to fashion a bikini (those days are looong gone!), there are some great ideas to “get your ‘reuse’ on”!
Take a look, grab an old tee and give it new life!
