Shoulder Bows T-Shirt Refashion with a Gather

Make this simple shoulder bows t-shirt refashion with string bows! Step-by-step, DIY sewing tutorial. #crafting #crafts #upcycle #recycle #refashionista

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.”

Fabric Headband Refashion from a Thrifted T-Shirt

Turn a thrifted t-shirt find into a bunch of fabric headbands in less than five minutes. Simple step-by-step sewing tutorial.

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!!

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 …
