Hi creative crafters. I just purged my closet and I have several colorful tops I am thinking I could repurpose and make something fun out of them. I thought I wold be able to use these myself.

Hello.  Personally, I will pass on  your offer of shirts, as I have a ton myself.  But, I have seen the following done with them.  Cut squares for a table cloth or napkins.  The ones I saw were rather attractive.  Good thinking on trying to do something useful with them.

If you are a knitter or crocheter, you can cut them into stripes to make tshirt yarn. You can google "plarn" to figure out the technique. Anyone who has plastic bag can turn them into yarn.

If they are cotton you could cut them into strips and make a braided rug
