25 Refashioned T-Shirt Tutorials

Spring is coming up and I’m ready to shed some layers and show off some fabulous reconstructed t-shirts. By starting with a t-shirt, most of the work is done for you. All that’s left is to make it unique and perfectly fitted to your style.

Here are some great tutorials that I’ve found (in no particular order). Follow along with one of these or get creative and design your own. Either way, you’ll be comfortable and stylish and that’s pretty much the sweetest thing.

By the way, I couldn’t help but mix in some neat non-clothing items made from t-shirts. They were too creative and useful to leave out.

    I am SO inspired to go through the closets. I don’t even have babies but those bibs are genius…… note to self: find a baby to make those for!!!!!
