Borrow a book called Generation T from your local libray. It shows you 108 ways to refashion your Tshirts. I'm really fanscinated by all the ideas and just wish I had the time to try all of them out!

I would definitely agree with this, and the t-shirt quilt comment. I love t-shirt quilts they are so damn soft and cozy.

I have always wanted to make either a quilt or pillow out of my old t-shirts. If you aren't attached to them in anyway, my mom used to use old t-shirts as dust rags.

If there is a special picture or feature of the front of the t-shirt, you can cut it out and use it for any kind of cozy. Some sewing might be involved as the shirt will start to fringe. I have this smokey the bear shirt that won't fit anymore and a match box cozy would be perfect for that. Or any kind of kitchen appliance.

Another great tshirt recon book is called Tease. I like that one better than Generation T. Has projects you never dreamed of for tshirts.

I agree with an earlier reader.  Generation T has a lot of ideas for repurposing the t's into new clothes.  I have been saving t-shirts and hitting the thrift stores for about 4 months now.  There is a t-shirt scarf and quilt that I am planning on making.  DIY Network has directions at

Here's the Creative Juice's directions for a tshirt quilt- http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cr_linens_fabrics/article/0,2025,DIY_13765_4412057,00.html

Good luck!

My friend and I started a t shirt challenge were we mailed each other shirts we were tired of and posted pictures of our results...it's a great way to keep in touch and stay on our creative toes. You could make hoodies, arm and leg warmers, tube tops, tank tops..the sky's the limit! I've also seen reusable shopping totes made out of old t shirts that are pretty cool, and super handy (unique holiday gifts?)
Good luck, and happy crafting!
