T-shirt, T-shirt, what will you become

There are many ways to repurpose a T-shirt. Some very obvious ones, like resizing or appliquéing a shirt to be more girlie, to cover-up stains, or whatever

But then, there are some intricately cool ways to repurpose a T-shirt.


You can make a hat for your kid, like Cheri from
I am Momma Hear me Roar

or like me.

You can make accessories like BeccaG or buy them in her shop.

There are numerous T-shirt necklaces on the web, just click here, you won't know what hit you. Nevertheless, the most amazing, happy, colorful and unique T-shirt necklaces are made by Maša a.k.a. Sušena žemljica. And she calls the Spaghettis!!! Just look at this

 Yes, yes..these are handmade buttons, and I like them more than diamonds. Seriously!

And now, from decorating ourselves, we can move to our home-decor. For instance, by making a pillow:

Or these pom-poms:
Tute here.

Or if you have around 50 T-shirts you don't know what to do with, and you are armed with incredible patience, you could do this rug:

I love all of these. I am most probably not making a rug, I am not a patient person AND we have a bulldog. Bulldogs shed extremely, so no rugs for us really. But you should! Let me know if you do!
