How do I Re-use T-shirts: T-shirt Crafts that You Can Wear

T-shirt Crafts that Kids Can Wear

T-shirts are made to be worn!

If you’ve got a beloved T-shirt that doesn’t fit well anymore, you don’t always want to turn it into wall art or a quilt or a coaster. Sometimes you just want to upcycle your T-shirt into something ELSE that you can wear!

Before you take the scissors to that pile of screen-printed jersey knit, check out this master list of T-shirt crafts that you can wear–there are T-shirt mods for your top, T-shirt mods for your bottom (ahem…), T-shirt mods for kids, but all of it is just the way that T-shirts are meant to be.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
