Children, adults, whole, ripped, color, faded ... Will be useful either. So many useful things you can do! If you can not do - you give your girlfriend t-shirt, needlework, and show her this article.
Usually we send the old T-shirts to the cottage, the home clothes, or even rags and cloth. No! Both at home and at the cottage, let's wear the same beautiful and new things, but to throw out worn T-shirt, too, I do not advise hurry. Because of it you can make at least a dozen new, useful and creative things. Attack?
T-shirt has a universal structure in order to dispense with the seams and edges. After knitted fabric has a weave that does not allow the edges to crumble. Therefore, T-shirts, children's knitted things always find their "second life".
The idea №1. Stylish hair accessory
1. Take the T-shirts and cut into wide strips about 2, 5 - 4 centimeters. When weaving, they will become much thinner.
2. Five strips sewn together (at one end), and begin weaving. After weaving again sew strips together, securing the braid.
3. Sew the resulting braid so to get the ring size of the head. Prepare a rectangular piece of T-shirt to cover up the seam line. Camouflage fabric sewn, hiding the raw edges.
4. All seams are located on the reverse side of the rim of our hair. Further - it is your imagination - some thick weave choose which color or combination of colors.
The idea №2. The original scarf
The idea was supported by many Blogersha, and now on the internet you can find a huge number of variations of this idea. And everything is very simple! Again the idea of stripes.
We'll look at how to make a scarf here:
1. Take the T-shirts of different textures and colors and cut into long strips the width of 3-5 cm.
2. Some strips woven into braids, some left free again, it all depends on your imagination.
The idea №3. Decorations
Yes, yes, of plain old T-shirt can be stylish and unique jewelry: brooches, bracelets, rings.
1. Let's make the ring. We need t-shirts circles of 3-6 cm in diameter, a circle of thin foam (2-3 cm in diameter), glue a strip of T-shirt (this is the ring around your finger). Take a circle of fabric and fold in 3-4 adding that it was possible to cover the center of the circle with glue. Glued to the foam cup.
2. Repeat this with the other circles, until all the glue. Cooking from the rim strip rings. For the stiffness can be routed into some dense material.
3. Glue the flower to the resulting ring. All is ready!
The idea №4. Bag-string bag
Go to the things from the category of "home for the family." Have a stylish eco-bag is now fashionable to have. We make it from the T-shirts. There are two interesting options.
Just pull the material, and the result string bag for shoes or vegetables. Bag erased, it is long.
It is good that no seams do not have to own all the seams using those already on the shirt.
1. Cut off the sleeves and do a little deeper neckline. From the remnants of shirts to do a tape width of 3-5 cm.
2. At the bottom edge of the incision, but do not touch the seam.
3. Using a pin, weed out the tape on the bottom of T-shirts and addictive. We get closed bottom of the bag.
Stylish bag a la hippie ready! And most importantly - without a sewing machine!
The idea №5. Case for Laptop
Extremely simple idea, do not even need to tell it in steps. The main thing is that the pockets for cables obtained by themselves, and all the seams are handled by commercial methods. Beauty!
These are just a few ideas. But the blogosphere every day presents new items. For example, one of the caring mother sews shirts ... diapers. These diapers can be washed, they are reusable, and this justifies a complex pattern, which she invented.
From knitted tapes can not only weave straps and ropes. Of these, it is possible ... to knit! Original knitted fabric turns out!
But such a mat of residue shirts please malyshni. This develops mat turned out! Although as a rug beside the bed is also nice.
Of course, like all of the furniture cushions for t-shirts, bows and generally any interior decorations.
I hope you're convinced that it is better to not use a cloth shirts, but only on a creative house for yourself!
