We all have stored our old favorite t-shirts somewhere in the house that we cannot just throw away. These old tees share a sentimental value and we hold them dear. They carry memorable moments of our life and then they’re no longer wearable. So it’s very hard to get rid of them for sentimental reasons sometimes. So rather than just throwing them away and feeling sorry, we have some suggestions for you to recondition your old t-shirts.
Recondition your Old T-shirts
Using these tricks, you will be able to give your old t-shirts a new life and maintain the sentimental value attached to them.
This is the most visionary and useful of all ideas. Although making a quilt out of your t-shirts might take a long time and it can be costly, the result is astonishing. Quilts can be exceptional gifts and surprises for someone you care for (or for you) and a way to preserve all their events without an excess of t-shirts.
Normally, mothers do a quilt for their son/daughter when they go to college. If you love craft stuff, you have to try this and you will enjoy this. For a large quilt, you will need about 30 old t-shirts, but for a smaller one, 15 – 20 are sufficient.
That is another efficient method to recondition your old t-shirts, and the best thing is that you will use them for years to come. You can use only the big part from the t-shirt to create a square pillow or you can use the entire t-shirt.
T-shirt Pet Toys
Old, non-wearable t-shirts can also be transformed into fun pet toys, items for pets to chase and chew. That is very useful and the whole process can be more entertaining if you add a squeaker inside the toy. That will make them happy about the new toy.
Also, you can use t-shirts to make their sleeping area more comfortable or to dry them after a bath or rain. You can use this approach not only for t-shirts but also for any other clothes (sweatshirts) that you are not wearing anymore.
This reconditioning technique is very effective for those who want to have a nice emotional t-shirt bag. The bag that comes from an old t-shirt might not be as attractive as a new one, bought from the store, but it can make you feel better that your favorite t-shirt is not wasted.
The t-shirt bag can be used for various purposes. The best t-shirt bags can be made from knit t-shirts because you don’t have to worry about finishing the edges.
T-shirt Wall Art
This is another excellent way to present the old t-shirts that you own and have a charming and attractive design. You can frame the t-shirt or decorate some small furniture with it. The result is more astonishing than you may think.
This technique is perfect for renovating a child’s room with small t-shirts printed with his childhood heroes. The best part is; it is super easy and inexpensive.
