10 Ways to Refashion Old Shirts

10 awesome ways to refashion old t-shirts from Babble.com

I always love the look of a great t-shirt paired with the perfect pair of comfy jeans. What do I love even more? Saving a buck and gaining extra mileage out of clothing I already own. Lately I’ve been seeing so many cool ways to refashion old t-shirts to make them one of a kind pieces your closet will be happy to hold. We’re talking ombre, stripes, neon, cool zippers, big bows – the works! Want to give new life to one of your old workout tees or that oversized shirt your guy doesn’t wear anymore? Here are 10 cool ways to refashion old shirts! Bonus: A few of them are even no-sew ideas perfect for those of you who, like me, do better with painter’s tape and spray paint than a needle and thread.
