15 t shirt projects

Today I have gathered up and am sharing some of my favorite projects: up-cycling projects.  Here are 15 Creative T-Shirt Projects that skillfully re-purpose or re-design a simple t-shirt into something new, better or totally different.  I can’t wait to get busy and try out some of these projects because, really, who doesn’t have a pile of t-shirts laying around the house taking up space.  I certainly do!  They are t-shirts from events or groups that I feel bad just junking…but to re-purpose, well that would be totally okay!

I hope you too find some inspiration here.  If you do, and if you want to pin one of the projects here, please make sure to pin from the original post, and not from here.  Thanks so much, and enjoy!
