Upcycle Project T-shirts to Bath Mat

I've got my decluttering momentum back but woke up today with the nasty 24 hour thing that hubby had yesterday. So even though I wanted to declutter I couldn't. What to do? A T-shirt upcycle project of course.

I've been holding onto some T-shirts with plans of upcycling them into a bathmat. It's a project that doesn't require any thinking on my behalf (the way lace making does because it's still so new for me) and it's also technically a decluttering project because it will remove some storage items from storage, so I get to feel like I'm making decluttering progress at the same time.

So far I've used up 5 T-shirts and there is enough of each T-shirt left that I can use them as rags. I don't know yet if I will use them as is or if I will actually cut them into squares and edge them on the overlocker so they can be washed and reused. I'll see how motivated I feel. I do want to try making a duster the way it says to in the CWA cookbook where you soak the cloth in paraffin or something.

Um, and that's it for this fuzzy head. Have you done a T-shirt upcycle project, or do you plan to? Let me know in the comments! I might have to give it a try.

  1. Great idea! I have a huge pile of t-shirt yarn I don't know what to do with....maybe this will be it!

    1. I'm always in need of a new bath mat and they suit the rag-rug look. I hope your t-shirt yarn project goes well!

  3. It's finished now - I'll put a picture up of how it turned out probably tomorrow. Thankfully they are fast to make up.
