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.
