Refashion Ideas for Summer

Have you been looking at your wardrobe and thinking, “I have nothing to wear for summer!” After reading Julie’s post about how to upcycle a t-shirt into a tank-top, I was inspired to find more refashioning ideas. Instead of buying new clothes and shoes, upcycle some of your old ones! Here are 5 amazing tutorials to get you started:

Do you have some old flip-flops that need a boost? I love this tutorial from Ashley at Make It and Love It! She transformed cheap flip-flops into really adorable and ruffled t-strap flip-flops. What I love most: they look so easy to make! Check out her  tutorial to see how to make your flip-flops go from blah to beautiful!
