Easy Sewing Projects with Old T-Shirts
T-Shirt Tote Bag
Turn your old t-shirts into reusable tote bags! Cut off the sleeves and neckline, then sew the bottom hem to
create a rectangular shape. Cut strips from the sleeves to make handles, and sew them onto the bag. This
project is perfect for carrying groceries or going to the beach.
T-Shirt Infinity Scarf
Add a stylish touch to your outfit with an infinity scarf made from an old t-shirt. Cut the shirt into
horizontal strips, stretch them to curl the edges, and sew the ends together. You can use multiple t-shirts
of different colors for a unique and vibrant scarf.
Here’s a great DIY Network tutorial with detailed instructions.
Transform your old t-shirts into comfortable and personalized pillowcases. Cut out the front and back of the
t-shirt, leaving a seam allowance. Sew three sides together, leaving one side open. Then, stuff the pillowcase
with filling or insert an old pillow. Sew the final side to close it, and you’ll have a cozy new pillowcase!
