108 ways

If you're crafty and have some old t-shirts around, you have to get Generation T 108 ways to transform a T-shirt.

The girls and I have enjoyed transforming old t-shirts for the past several years because of this book!

We have made t-shirt skirts.

T-shirt vests.

And we've made cute halter tops.

Most of the t-shirt transformations are pretty easy! 

The one we made for Miss Emma Bean this summer is one of my favorites!

We cut the sleeves off of an old, long sleeved shirt.

Then we cut diagonally from the neck line to the bottom of the opposite armhole. 

We then cut 4, 1 inch strips off of the bottom of another t-shirt and sewed them onto the back of the shirt we were transforming.

Miss Emma Bean braided a few inches of the strips of t-shirt. We stitched the end of the braid so it would stay braided, and then stitched the free ends of the braided piece to the front of the t-shirt.

Voila! Old t-shirt...transformed!

The book also has patterns for making bags, rugs, pillows, the list goes on and on!

Transforming old t-shirts, a very fun craft!


P.S. Anyone else have a favorite fun craft? I'd love to hear about it!
