T-Shirt Refashion With Lace Hem
We’ve all seen them…heck, we’ve all bought them…those t-shirts that are available in every color imaginable. They are a bit of a staple in my closet, as I am sure they are in other people’s closets too. They are great worn with sweaters, jackets and other layers when the weather is cool, but when the weather gets warm…I do have to admit to being a bit bored with the look when I wear them by themselves.
Sorting through my lace stash, I decided a little refashion was in order.
I added wide flat lace to the bottom of a t-shirt. If you do this, I strongly suggest using a zigzag stitch. A zigzag stitch will allow the the shirt to stretch without breaking the thread.
The extra lace made the tee way too long, but I had no intention of stopping there.
I folded a deep cuff above the lace and stitched at the top of the cuff.
I love the way it turned out. 😉
Recycled T-Shirt Coffee Cup Wrap
Another crafty, no-cost, quick gift idea to do with an old t-shirt. If you need a refresher on cutting the “yarn”, you can find a brief explanation here.
Again, I haven’t written out the particulars to this crochet project yet, but it’s a pretty basic idea. You just need a strip long enough to wrap around a standard size coffee cup, plus a bit of overlap to attach a button. The strip needs to be able to fit through the handle. I used a size N hook.
Depending on the size of the button you are using, you may need to chain and skip a stitch or two for a buttonhole.
I used a button from my stash that I had saved from old clothing, so this project is also no-cost.
