  1. I did a piece back in 2019 about knitting handbags from jersey strips.
    https://how-would-you-know.blogspot.com/
    The big choice is whether to zig-zag in the cutting up, which produces little "tabs" at each turn, or to spiral round, cutting through the seams which gives a little lump at each seam. I suppose you could spiral around the back or front of a t-shirt and with rounded spiral - avoid lumps or tabs, but you would have slightly more waste...

  2. Wow! Never knew we could use T shirts to make so many things. I'm going to bookmark this post and share it with friends. Thank you for sharing. :D

  3. Now, this one I have tried--not on my own but asked a friend who's a quilter to use my daughter's football jerseys from school and uni to create a keepsake blanket for her. It's gorgeous.
    Love all the other idea---especially the grey basket with coasters. Will be saving this one for later too. Cheers.

  5. So many creative ideas to repurpose your old T-Shirts!

    A few years ago I found a lady who turned a huge box full of our old baby clothes into a fantastic quilt that we still use as a blanket.

  7. These are great ideas! I have a lot of band t-shirts I've been trying to turn into a quilt but it's a massive undertaking. I like the ideas for some of the smaller projects instead. Especially the "painting" one - what a nice way to display them!

  8. Interesting! Old t-shirts say a lot about the person you were! I must admit to using my old ones as cloths to wash the car and things with - now I feel rather guilty

  9. Am amazed. Totally amazed and inspired to play with some old tshirts even if it goes wrong.

  10. I love the tote for groceries! My ex-sister in law cut out the cute part of a t-shirt and sewed it onto a new t-shirt. You couldn't tell, she was a great seamstress.

  11. I love turning them into a wall picture, looks cool!

  12. I never fail to be impressed by human creativity when it comes to repurposing.

  13. I love the idea of the stretchy holed shopping bag! I have a friend making a quilt of special T-shirts for her daughter. She's having a great time doing it.

  14. And again, loads of ideas for after April.

  15. Fabulous ideas! I especially like the ones that still display the design on the t-shirt, since the ones I can't part with are nostalgic.

  16. I knew about the quilts and the bags but love the frames and some of the other new-to-me ideas! My cats back in the day would have loved that little pet tent and I need to try those sneaker laces.

  17. C'est fantastique ces articles recyclés. Avec trois garçons à la maison, j'ai plein de vieux T-shirts. Oh mon dieu, que je manque de temps, haha! Merci pour les trouvailles. ;^)

  18. And I bet you barely scratched the surface. Over the summer, one of the secretaries at work cut up an old t-shirt to make elastic for her masks. She said it was much softer on her ears than normal elastic, and it was just as stretchy.

    RĂ©pondreSupprimer
  19. So many good ideas! I love all of these. Although I do have to say that the dog toys work brilliantly. I have (bought) 4 for my puppy and he loves them. They are great for puppy teeth, so colourful and not as hard as rope toys.

  20. Since T-shirts are very popular ... you have given a number of very useful tips.

  21. Wow, what wonderful ideas for old T-shirts! Thanks for linking up!

    RĂ©pondreSupprimer
  22. You found lots of great ideas for using t-shirts! I used strips cut from an old t-shirt to make ear pieces for masks. They were soft and stretchy!

  23. Long ago I made a quilt top with all my old sentimental t-shirts, but then never did finish the quilt! Ooops. I love the idea for the bags, though.
