Upcycled T Shirts

I love going to thrift shops to find treasures that can be recycled/upcycled into something new and useful!  Breathing life into something again is so satisfying as the creative juices eek out something useful, something fun, or something totally unexpected.  (And yes, there is that brainstorm that totally falls flat on its face and the revamped article will never see the light of day again!)

Lately I have been collecting T Shirts to upcycle them into totes, purses, and/or wallets.  I hunt through the racks and racks of T Shirts to come up with a few that will make that perfect tote or purse for someone.

A Green Bay Packer fan donated a shirt to one of the local thrift stores and I transformed it into this tote for another Green Bay Packer fan!  Wonder if it is going to the Super Bowl?


Like black and pink?  Then this would have been a great bag for you!



And this one is absolutely perfect for the Irish Lass!



I have a stack of shirts to work on now - better get busy cutting and sewing!


Thanks for stopping by...
