Ombre Fringe Skirt from an old t-shirt

I am a sucker for upcycling. There is something so thrilling about taking something destined for Goodwill or a landfill and recreating it again.  Which is why I love my other site, Roadkill Rescue.  It is packed full of amazingly talented people who can see beyond the trash can as well.  As I was purging my t-shirt collection I thought…

what to do with old tshirts

This week I have some fun upcycled t-shirt ideas for you that I can’t wait to show you.  If you are a local I will be on Indy Style tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. to show you a simple upcycled Valentine’s Day scarf that you can make with your kiddos.  And…if I can talk her into it…Kayla will be demoing with me.

    My daughter was just cutting up tees this weekend! She tried to make a heart design in the back of the tee. Not sure if she got what she wanted but she was creating and having fun with clearance tees. 🙂 I love this pick of you–it’s just a FUN pic! Can’t wait to see what you made.

    I love #3 and funny thing I have these cool retro tees from Gap kids I was just trying to figure out what I should make with them!

  3. I guess I’m just not into this that much. I do l ike the tug toy for the dog, but I use my old scrappy t-shirts for dust rags and even swiffer pads. Most are 100% cotton and they do a good job on both chores, plus I can bleach them to remove dust and other floor debris.
