who doesn’t have an old t-shirt?

by @according2kelly on June 5, 2008


it’s the first thursday of the month. do you know what that means? not your mama’s craft night (nymcn) will be in full force tonight. interested in crafting along from the comfort of your own home? then grab an old t-shirt, or two or three & get ready to transform them into anything & everything… make a cuter, more fitted shirt, or pants, a bag, or children’s clothes. seriously, the possibilities are endless! check out the following links, & get ready to get your craft on.

  • the incredible shrinking T (take a large T & make it into a fabulous fitted T, instructions available HERE.)
  • t-shirt lounge pants (make a large T into comfy crop pants). instructions available HERE.
  • transforming adult T’s into clothes for kiddos. (toddler pants or infant gowns)
  • or, check out here if you are ready to take your t-shirt refashioning to the next level.

I love all these pictures from NYMCN! You are inspiring me to start some projects on my new-to-me sewing machine. The infant gown you pictured last week was super cute!

Amazing! I just did this in April pulling inspiration from http://www.ohmystars.net/craft/ - thanks for more ideas to reuse my old college t-shirts into something useful. Is it ok if I repost the links on my blog?

oh, I've already tried the tshirt lounge pants... didn't quite work out so well since I don't really own any huge tshirts. or maybe it's because my butt's too big. whatev. :)
