Old t-shirts? Here are 5 ways to make them new again!

Old T-Shirts

Do you have some old t-shirts in your closet that are past their prime? Shirts with stains or tears don’t have to go to the landfill!

If you’ve got old t-shirts that are in good condition you can donate them to a thrift store, but shirts that are stained or damaged aren’t fit for donation. It might seem like those old tees are landfill-bound, but they don’t have to be! Whether you’re a novice crafter with no sewing skills or a sewing machine veteran, there are lots of ways that you can revamp old t-shirts to make them new again.
