Basically, you take an old, stretched-out, pit-stained shirt, and turn it into an infinity scarf. I had a t-shirt that fit the bill. It had been a favorite of mine 30 pounds ago, but it now hung on me; it also had armpit stains, but it just seemed too cute to throw away. (I tried to find a picture of the shirt in its original state, but no luck.) After literally less than five minutes of work, I had a new accessory!
So, that leads me to my next question: I've found lots of uses for old clothes, and I've also come up with ways to improve upon something old or worn. I haven't yet figured out anything to do with old shorts. I have several pairs that are too big for me now that I've lost baby weight, but they don't fit anyone else in the family either. Do they just get donated to Goodwill, or does anyone have another idea of what to do with them?
What are some things you have "up cycled"?
