Repurposing Tutorials

I love turning something into something else. That doesn’t necessarily mean clothing.

Over the years I’ve found some of the niftiest repurposing tutorials ever. Some of them people have sent me and some I’ve just stumbled upon. I decided they were too fun not to share.

This Shirt Skirt Tutorial has got to be one of my favorites. Laura just sent it to me the other day and I’m sold. I haven’t been to the thrift store yet but I’m heading there soon and will look at the 2-3X t-shirts.

These are extra large men’s t-shirts lopped off below the sleeves and shirred at the top with elastic thread. No hemming.

This Smock from a Man’s Shirt is from Anna at Pleasant View Schoolhouse. She is big on repurposing thrifted items and if you haven’t visited her site, do it.

I myself have made aprons (here and here) from linen sheath dresses from the thrift store. I need to keep an eye out for more dresses…
This is one I haven’t tried yet but I’m going to. Wool Soakers from Sweaters. Seriously easy.

What are your favorite repurposing projects?
