I am on a t-shirt kick this week. Did you see the scarf and dress I made for Kayla already? I thought it would be fun to paint stripes on an old t-shirt (that got accidentally bleached – DOH!) and turn it into a ruffled striped skirt for my daughter. Now I did this project a couple of years ago and my daughter still wears the skirt. While is is almost ready to be passed down on the hand-me-down train I thought we could retake a look at it once more before that happens.
I am loving upcycling old t-shirts. T-shirt material is so forgiving and it usually doesn’t need extra prep for the edges not to fray. I was inspired by Cheri from I am Momma Hear Me Roar to try my sewing skills at using t-shirts to make a layered dress for Kayla. I must say once you get the hang of it you can’t stop making them. They are so fun and embellishing makes them each unique.
Looking for a quick Valentine’s Day project to do with your kiddos? This project is super simple and can be made with an old t-shirt. If you are anything like me you have t-shirts coming out the wazoo. We easily have over 75 between my husband and I. It is time to start purging and upcycling. That is what this week is all about – T-shirt Upcycle Week.
Making a quick Duck Brand® Tape belt is super simple and takes about 5 minutes. There are so many Duck Brand® Tape patterns nowadays you can make one for every outfit. When the Duck Brand® Tape wears out just cut it off and reuse your D-rings to make another. So let’s Duck the Halls with this cute holiday belt.
