I am a clothes makin’ newbie and hope to have a wonderful new product line to show off by the end of the year. Until that happens, I am in search of inspiration from my fellow upcyclers out there. This week I concentrated on googling “upcycled T shirts” and “shirts made from recycled material” to see what I could round up for a nice picture post.
Here are some of my favorite upcycled t shirts from other upcyclers around the globe.
During my scavenger hunt I also found a cool new website! Teecylce.org
Think recycling for awesome t-shirts. The founders of the company find cool shirts tucked away at yard sales and thrift shops and sell them online. They donate $1 from each purchase to support the River Revitalization Foundation. I love this idea. Now, as a consumer, you can make a conscious choice to by used! And this guy and gal will do the preliminary shopping for you. Great idea.
I am off to experiment with making some t-shirts from recycled materials!
Thanks to the following websites and blogs for providing such inspiring work!
