Restyled T-shirts

Jun 19, 2009
Article Image

What can we do with the T-shirts we don’t wear anymore, but they are still new or look new?   Everyone has T shirts in their closet. We either give them away, throw them, or use it as a rag. But not any more. You can redesign your t-shirts with minimal or no hand sewing. I have transformed these T-shirts into my own designs, using hand stitches (serves both purposes: functional and decorative), buttons, trims, and fusible web. I am also teaching this class at a Summer camp in Hayward, CA.

    These are great designs! I have been restyling T-shirts too. Mainly because the t-shirts I like are usually in men XXL sizes and so I've been making them into simple T-shrit dresses. I'm new to Threads but I'll put some photos up once I've got to grips with it!

    These are some wonderful re-designs I will share them with my students. Well done, and very clever. I imagine your class went very well.

  8. Sorry that I am unable to attend your class! Is it possible to put instructions online for basic redesign? I would love to redesign old T-shirts like this!

    Yes, I have already uploaded the front shot. I was given Summer Camp t-shirt to Re-design.
