Fantastic Finds Fridays: Upcycled Tshirts.

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!
