How To Recycle Your Old Tees

Published November 30, 2011 by Putri Kusumawardhani

T-shirts have a lifespan, they don’t last forever, they stretch, they fade, they get stained, and sometimes the tees stay the same but the owner changes size, or just changes their taste. So what do you do with a tee when you don’t want to wear it anymore? As it turns out, other people have this problem too, and there are loads of tutorials out there with interesting ideas for how to recycle your t-shirts into something ‘new’.

Page One has 6 tutorials for turning your old tees into a rug or quilt, and 7 ideas for turning t-shirts into bags, often with the idea of using them as shoping bags, which I’m sure would get you a lot of approving looks at Trader Joe’s. The Second Page is for those of you that want to refresh and recondition your tees so that they’re still a t-shirt(ish), but with a bit of a customized twist to make you stand out from the crowd. Page Three sees your tees becoming skirts and dresses, and I was pretty impressed with a lot of the finished articles on that page. The Last Page has links to books about reconditioning and recycling your t-shirts, so kind of like this list, except in book form.
