Upcycling workshop with Our Social Fabric is today!

This afternoon is the Transform Your T-Shirt upcycling workshop with Our Social Fabric. We were going to bleach t-shirts but have now changed the workshop to a more general crafting circle set up. Everyone brings a t-shirt and we relove them... Maybe turn them into tanks, pillow covers... Maybe a funky headband!



I decided to try an upcycling project I found while searching for ideas for the workshop - making a knotted headband with t-shirt yarn. I found this old and a teeny bit stained tank top to repurpose.



I cut six strips that were approximately the same length.



You then separate them into two groups of three strands. Watch this handy video for how to knot the t-shirt strands. It's super easy!



Here's my knotted headband so far...



I then stitched the ends together and it was done!



Such a fun and quick way to repurpose old t-shirts or tank tops. I bet I could make four or five headbands out of my old tank top!



And thanks to my super awesome crafty peep Brigitte from DIYorDIE.ca we have a few books to help us in our t-shirt transformation adventures.



And what a perfect day to be indoors repurposing old t-shirts... It's grey and wet out there!
