A great way to add texture, warmth and color if you like it is transforming sweaters into pillows! Those overly boxy, outdated or out of style pillows can have new life as you cozy up to them on the couch!

Create Tshirt yarn and get hooking!

tshirt yarn

Do you crochet or knit? A really fun “trend” for Tshirts right now is making YARN out of them and then….well the SKIES the limit!!! Think of all the possibilities of yarn in your Home Decor but this is thicker, weighter and a little more stiff. Make a basket or a rug! The trick is all in how you CUT it to make 1 really LooooOOOng strand!

I have been obsessed with this shirt since I first saw it. From the front, plain t-shirt – but from the back – amazing basket weave! Um, me want basket weave shirt! I actually spotted it on Pinterest and thought it would be difficult, but then clicked through and realized that it wasn’t so hard after all. I could do this with short sleeve as well! I think I’ve found my next refashion project.
