Friday Favorites–T-Shirt Refashion and Recycling

T-shirts are like the flour of fashion.  They aren’t good for much all by themselves but they’re the foundation of a lot of things that couldn’t exist without them.  Once in a while, I look into my closet, wonder how I ended up with so many t-shirts and go shopping for something new.  But I always come back to them, and occasionally try to figure out how I can make them better with crayons, paint, bleach or scissors.  And I’m not the only one out there.

These T-Shirt Pom Poms from Craftaholics Anonymous are not only cute, but they look like they would be really fun to make.


I’m so glad I found this this tutorial for Dear Lizzy’s Pretty Petals Tee before I bought another one of these flowery tops.  I actually wish I had found it before I bought the first one.


I like crafts I can do while I watch television or movies with my family. These T-Shirt Yarn Braided Coasters from Homework would be perfect, and when I’m done, I can set whatever tasty beverage I’m drinking on them.


I love all of the texture and detail on this Anthropologie Pratia Tank Top from Made by Lex.


I’ve wanted to try these Bleach Pen T-Shirts, like these from Show Tell Share, for months now.  I’m just waiting for the weather to be nice enough I can do it outside so I don’t knock myself out.


This Empire Cut Blouse from Guaya is cute, but the bit of ribbon and lace she added makes it adorable.


I. Love. This. Rug.  Thanks to Xoelle for sharing how she made it.


This Long Sleeved Shirt to Short Sleeves from Make It and Love It didn’t just get its sleeves cut off, but added details as well.


All I can say about this reverse applique t-shirt from Sew Simple is wow.


And finally, a pretty Lace Applique Tank Top refashion from Ali Foster Patterns that would be perfect for the lovely summer weather I’m sure is coming our way soon.
