Do you know how to cut a heart in a shirt? I’m totally in love with making Valentine’s Day shirts. Something about the day of love makes me happy. I make a new shirt every year! So in keeping with this tradition, I’m going to give you a tutorial on how to make this heart cut out t-shirt refashion.
Refashioned DIY Clothing
Step-by-step refashioned DIY clothing tutorials to remake, upcycle & reuse thrift store clothes. Several t-shirt refashions!
Recycle Some Old Clothes
In these refashioned DIY clothing tutorials, I show you how to make new stuff out of old stuff. You can simply use old t-shirts to make cleaning rags (they make the best rags ever) or turn old sweaters into pillows. I’ll show you how with these step-by-step sewing tutorials, all with clear photographs and instructions. No sewing experience necessary to learn all these refashion DIY clothing projects!
Want to see another tutorial? Just drop me a note!
Learn to Sew
I just don’t show you how to refashion clothes, I also teach you how to sew. Many projects cost less than $5.
Reduce & Reuse
Over the last few years, our family has gone through a transformation of using less. This means being conscious of what we buy – bringing our own reusable bags for groceries, purchasing a hybrid car, buying items that have no packaging. It also means being careful of what we throw out – recycling when we can, fixing items instead of buying new, and remaking things!
After one season, many people will just throw stuff out. Or donate it. I see tons and tons of old clothes – many with brand new price tags – at the Salvation Army. Because it’s not what Kylie Jenner or Kim Kardashian would wear this season.
I have a different mindset. I buy or remake clothes that are timeless – stuff I want to wear again and again. I don’t get caught up in the mindset of trendy.

Refashion a T Shirt with Bows 10 Different Ways
I’ve been meaning to do this roundup of all my “Refashion a T Shirt with Bows 10 Different Ways” tutorials that I made over the summer, but somehow couldn’t get myself to actually publish this post. But, at long last, today I finally have my bow tutorial roundup for everyone! …
DIY Shorts From A Shirt
Today, Kitty and I are going to show you how to refashion DIY shorts from a shirt, because it’s the end of the summer and we need to sneak in some summer clothing on the blog. Jersey shorts are awesome if you are lazy, like us. I hate wearing nice …
Peasant Bow-Tie Shirt Refashion From a Dress
I love peasant shirts. Do you remember this peasant shirt that I made with a gold chain? Something about them are so feminine and beautiful. So I’m pretty excited for today’s shirt, a peasant bow-tie shirt refashion! Like the other shirt, I made this one from a dress because I can take advantage of the length. The bow is made from a satin ribbon.
Fabulous July 4th Tie Die Dress From Two Men’s White T-Shirts
I’m reposting this blog post Fabulous July 4th Tie Die Dress From Two Men’s White T-Shirts because, for whatever reason, my other blog post is broken — every time I try to update the post, it crashes my web site! I know I’m not supposed to “reblog” the same post, but since it constantly breaks my web site, I thought I’d make the jump …
Shoulder Bows T-Shirt Refashion with a Gather
I bought an extra man’s green t-shirt for St. Patrick’s Day, but it was a little too bright. I think the color is more appropriate for the hazy, happy days of summer! So here’s another ten minute refashion, making a shoulder bows t-shirt. This gives a little feminine ruffle detail on the shoulder. This gather-sewing trick can be used in all sorts of different refashions, such as on the sleeves or on the sides to create a little bit of extra detail. I always use plain t-shirt in order to show off the refashions, but this would look just as nice with a printed t-shirt, maybe even more so.
Simple Cut Bows T-Shirt Refashion
This week, we have a very quick refashion — you make this shirt in less than 5 minutes with some fabric glue, so it’s also a no sew refashion. This shirt is a simple cut bows t-shirt. A good candidate for the “before” shirt is a t-shirt with some kind of decal or logo on the front, but blank on the back, although I think it would look fine with a decal or logo on the back, too, just a little “crowded.”
Satin Bow Skirt Refashion
Happy Friday, everyone! I was modeling this skirt in last week’s lace bow t-shirt refashion. I think this satin bow skirt refashion and that lace bow t-shirt refashion makes a great ensemble!
Lace Bow Refashion from a Plain White T-Shirt
I’m going to show you an awesome bow ensemble … so this blog post will be the first of two. This post is a lace bow refashion using a plain white t-shirt, and next week, I will show you how to refashion a simple bow skirt. (You’ll be able to see both of the refashions in my pictures!)
A Fabulous Fabric Bow Back T-Shirt Refashion
I’m so excited to show you this week’s refashion! Purple is such an awesome color for the spring, too. This Fabric Bow Back T-Shirt took a bit longer than some of the other t-shirt tutorials because I had to make all the fabric bows, but once you make the squares, the shirt comes together nicely.
Refashion a Plain T-Shirt with a Bow Front T-Shirt
For my second blog post in the Bows, Bows, and Bows series, I am going to show everyone something super simple and super cute. In fact, you can remake this Bow Front T-shirt in like 10 minutes.
Fabric Headband Refashion from a Thrifted T-Shirt
I love refashioning and reusing t-shirts and other fabric scraps. Upcycling all those t-shirts is so eco-conscious. I could write blog posts about all the t-shirt remakes that I do. Alas, most are reused into cloth napkins, of which I have a variety of uses in my house. However, the colorful t-shirts are often remade into something else, like upcycling skirts or completely remaking a shirt into a cut-out design. Let’s turn this thrifted t-shirt into a fabric headband!!

Repurposing (Upcycled) Fashion Clothing: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
For this week’s upcycled fashion clothing project, I decided to repurpose a pair of pants that I hate. They weren’t my mother’s pants — they were something that I overpaid for at a yard sale — but I hate to throw them out because the label says “Aeropostale” on it. …

Upcycling an Ugly Dress into a Smashing Shirt
I found this dress at the Salvation Army. The top part of the dress left much to be desired. The designer obviously thought it was fashionable, but the fit was not right. But the bottom … what a great material! Reminded me of handkerchiefs. Upcycling this into something better should be …
