Fabulous July 4th Tie Die Dress From Two Men’s White T-Shirts

I’m reposting this blog post Fabulous July 4th Tie Die Dress From Two Men’s White T-Shirts because, for whatever reason, my other blog post is broken — every time I try to update the post, it crashes my web site!  I know I’m not supposed to “reblog” the same post, but since it constantly breaks my web site, I thought I’d make the jump … Continue Reading →
Shoulder Bows T-Shirt Refashion with a Gather

Shoulder Bows T-Shirt Refashion with a Gather

I bought an extra man’s green t-shirt for St. Patrick’s Day, but it was a little too bright.  I think the color is more appropriate for the hazy, happy days of summer!  So here’s another ten minute refashion, making a shoulder bows t-shirt.  This gives a little feminine ruffle detail on the shoulder.  This gather-sewing trick can be used in all sorts of different refashions, such as on the sleeves or on the sides to create a little bit of extra detail.  I always use plain t-shirt in order to show off the refashions, but this would look just as nice … Continue Reading →
Simple Cut Bows T-Shirt Refashion

Simple Cut Bows T-Shirt Refashion

This week, we have a very quick refashion — you make this shirt in less than 5 minutes with some fabric glue, so it’s also a no sew refashion.  This shirt is a simple cut bows t-shirt.  A good candidate for the “before” shirt is a t-shirt with some kind of decal or logo on the front, but blank on the back, although I think it would look fine with a decal or logo on the back, too, just a little “crowded.” Continue Reading →
Fabric Headband Refashion from a Thrifted T-Shirt

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!!

Bleach Spray Shirt Shamrock DIY Sewing Tutorial for St. Patrick’s Day

Happy (soon-to-be) St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!  My husband and I do not go out to the bars (almost at all), but we like to round up our friends and celebrate this lighthearted, happy holiday.  I’m always on the look-out for cute t-shirts, too.  Honestly, though, all those shirts at the Salvation Army are so tacky and gross.  I mean, happy is one thing.  Sloppy is quite another.  Today, I’m going to make a bleach spray shirt — out of a shamrock silhouette.  Look below for the DIY, step-by-step sewing tutorial.  And luck o’ the Irish to you!

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. They weren’t my mother’s pants — they were something that I overpaid for at a yard sale — but I hate to throw them out because the label says “Aeropostale” on it. Yeah, okay, I’m a sucker for a label.  That, and I overpaid for them so it’s more like being stubborn.  Of course, I wouldn’t be the first woman to make a fashion mispurchase! Here they are, the before picture. I’m not really sure why I hated these pants. They don’t … Continue Reading →
