What’s your favorite way to upcycle a t-shirt to create your own hot summer fashions? I’ve used fabric paint a few times but would love to try tie-dye again. I haven’t done a tie-dye project since the kids were little.

I really love the idea of turning your old t-shirts into a braided rug as well. I can’t knit but I’ve asked my daughter to see if she can make me one for Christmas. I’d love to hear some of your ideas?

  1. I always pin these when I see them since I want to do something with my old tee shirts beyond making them into a blanket, lol. I have a hard time letting go of faves so upcycling seems the way to go and it’s easy! Thanks for the long list here.
