I finally convinced my boyfriend to purge his clothes!
What resulted was a large stockpile of old t-shirts, work shirts, sweats, old golf shirts and more. I considered donating them - but wondered if there was anything I could do to repurpose this new-found loot.
I searched the web and found so many awesome blogs and sites with ideas for repurposed clothes - I felt like I hit the jackpot!
I came across so many creative ways to repurpose old t-shirts, it inspired me to try my hand at something!
I decided to combine and remix a couple of ideas and this is what I came up with - hope you like 'em!
**sorry for the blurry pics - I had to use my cell phone camera...
Step 1: Get your Stockpile together!
Step 2: Cut & Paste...
Cut out all your logos. I used the large ones on the back and the small ones (usually on the front, over the left breast). I didn't bother trying to cut them in standard sizes - although after I got into the sewing....I really wish I had! :)
Piece them together into a 'patchwork' type of design!
Step 3: Sew it up!
Sew together your 'patchwork' of logos!
(This is where cutting out standard sizes would have really been a good idea. It came out very cool looking - but I think it would have been just as awesome & easier, had all the pieces been 'even....)
Step 4: Cut Out Your Shorts, or Pants
So, if you want to use a pattern from this point on - please feel free!
Anyway, I just took pair of shorts from my boyfriend and used them like a template. Worked great!
You can cut these into shorts or pants - depending on how big your 'quilt' is....I'm even thinking of making a hoodie! :)
