Fabric Headband Refashion from a Thrifted T-Shirt

I love refashioning and reusing t-shirts and other fabric scraps.  Upcycling all those t-shirts is so eco-conscious. I could write blog posts about all the t-shirt remakes that I do.  Alas, most are reused into cloth napkins, of which I have a variety of uses in my house.  However, the colorful t-shirts are often remade into something else, like upcycling skirts or completely remaking a shirt into a cut-out design.  Let’s turn this thrifted t-shirt into a fabric headband!!

Repurposing (Upcycled) Fashion Clothing: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Repurposing (Upcycled) Fashion Clothing: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

For this week’s upcycled fashion clothing project, I decided to repurpose a pair of pants that I hate.
