DIY Refashion Jersey Shorts from a Man’s T-Shirt

4102816 51   505SharesToday, Kitty and I are going to show you how to refashion jersey shorts from a man’s t-shirt, because it’s the end of the summer and we need to sneak in some summer clothing on the blog. Jersey shorts are awesome if you are lazy, like us. I hate wearing nice clothes when it’s hot outside, and Kitty hates going outside because the outside is a scary place. Try to find the largest t-shirt that you can, and if necessary, use two t-shirts. 4102816 51   505Shares Continue Reading →

Shoulder Bows T-Shirt Refashion with a Gather

425   13   438SharesI 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

60069 34   649SharesThis 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.” 60069 34   649Shares Continue Reading →
Fabric Headband Refashion from a Thrifted T-Shirt

Fabric Headband Refashion from a Thrifted T-Shirt

1.1K   2   1.1KSharesI 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!! 1.1K   2   1.1KShares Continue Reading →
