If you ever found yourself with nothing fun to wear and no money in your wallet, you probably tried to comfort yourself with some ice cream or a few sessions of window shopping. Since we know how hard it can be to feel like you have nothing to wear and to have to wait for the next paycheck in order to buy new clothes, we thought it would be fun to inspire you with some ideas on ways to recycle old clothes into new fashion pieces.
1. Make fabrics new again
There are a lot of ways in which you can make older fabrics seem new again. For starters, you can try a fabric steamer. Generally the clothes steamer is used as a replacement for the classic iron, but few people actually know that the steaming process can relax and refresh the fabric fibers. If you don’t own a fabric steamer, we advise you to buy one as it can be a life saver. You can find some excellent steamers on the steamer.clothing website. Aside from steaming clothes, you can also refresh the colors of old clothes. Make pale whites white again with fabric bleach or try out fabric paint.
2. Bringing old t-shirts back in style
All women have a bunch of old t-shirts that they just can’t bring themselves to throw away. As such, we thought that you could use a purpose for those t-shirts. There are countless ways in which you can turn old t-shirts into new fashion items. You can turn t-shirts into cut out tank tops or you can cut the t-shirts into scraps and turn them into scarves. You can even try turning the sleeve of an old t-shirt into a headband. Another interesting idea would be to weave the back of a t-shirt. In order to do this, you must first delimit the part that you plan on weaving, which should have a rectangular shape. Once you do that, divide it vertically into equal stripes. Cut out one stripe every other stripe and sew the cut stripes horizontally in a weave pattern.
3. Styling up old jeans
If you have a pair of old jeans that you have not worn in a long time, you could try styling it up instead of throwing it away. For example, ripped jeans are very popular at the moment.If you are skilled with the crochet needle, you might also try crocheting on an old pair of jeans. If not, you can always apply some rhinestones in order to give your old jeans a new look.
4. Turning old clothes into stylish accessories
You don’t have to be a designer in order to create new stylish fashion pieces. You just need a little creativity and vision. However, if you have no ideas in mind, you needn’t worry as we have some excellent suggestions for you. For example, do you have an old red shirt that you no longer wear. If you do, then cut off its collar, attach a vintage brooch to it and you’ve got yourself a cool collar necklace. If you have some fabric scraps laying around, you can braid them and turn them into hip bracelets or you can turn them into ruffled brooches.
