Give Your Favourite Old T-Shirt A New Lease On Life

We all have those sentimental items of clothing that have just gotten worn and worn after years of attention. DIY website Instructables shows us how to take an old, unwearable T-shirt and turn it into something new.

The general idea isn't that complicated: You just cut out the design from the old T-shirt and sew it onto a new one. However, T-shirt fabric can be very finicky, and if you just start going to town with scissors and a sewing machine you're going to end up disappointed. Thus, this guide recommends adding the "Steam-a-seam 2" fusable webbing and an iron to your arsenal. With it, you can sew the piece of your old T-shirt on to your new one without it getting crumpled and bulky and keep your new shirt looking a bit nicer. Hit the link for more detailed instructions, and let us know your favourite methods for saving old clothes in the comments.
