DIY Dorm: Repurpose Old Clothes For A New Look

Do these, because…free.

FRINGED T-SHIRT SCARF – from AllDayChic.com
Materials: t-shirt, scissors

1. Cut your t-shirt all the way across, just under the armpits

2. Cut roughly 20cm fringes all along the bottom of the shirt (front and back)

3. Stretch each fringe for a longer, thinner result

OPTIONAL

4. Knot the fringes together in pairs of two.

5. Take one fringe from each pair and knot it with an adjacent fringe.

Stretch the scarf to your liking and enjoy!

DRAPED T-SHIRT VEST – from Wobosobi.blogspot.com
Materials: XL men’s t-shirt, scissors

1. Cut off the collar and sleeves, as well as a slit down both sides.

2. Open and slip arms through the hole.

That’s it. Crazy, huh?

P.S. You can also fashion it into a scarf – just pull one side of the vest through the opposite arm-hole.

SWEATER BAG – from PerchedOnAWhim.com
Materials: old sweater, scissors, needle and thread

1. Cut off the sleeves and neckline (as shown)

2. Line up the handles and bottom of the bag (I’d recommend turning the fabric inside out at this point)

3. Sew a straight line across the bottom, joining both sides (Turn bag right-side out when finished)

Voila! Cute new purse. (To prevent the fabric from unraveling or for a more finished look, fold over and sew the edges of the handles.)

What kind of re-purposing have you done this year? Did you try one of the tutorials above? Let us know how yours turned out!
