5 Ways to reuse old T-shirts

The Panoramic Properties blog team is always thinking about ways to turn something old into something new. For today’s post, we’ve put together a list of five ways our Niagara Falls residents can reuse their old T-shirts.

 

Turn them into rags

 

One of the easiest ways to reuse old T-shirts is to turn them into rags. Cut them up into your desired size and use them instead of paper towels for seasonal cleaning projects at your Weinbrenner Place Apartments (3401-3421 Weinbrenner Road).

 

Make a quilt

 

If you have a bunch of T-shirts that you love but no longer wear, keep their memories alive by turning them into a fun quilt. Here’s what you’ll need:

 

  • – 30-40 T-shirts
  • – Lightweight fusible interfacing
  • – Sewing machine
  • – Iron
  • – Rulers
  • – Lightweight blanket
  • – Fabric for the back

 

Complete DIY instructions along with photos can be found on this website. Fabric and other crafting supplies can be purchased from the local Hand Craft Gallery (5200 Robinson), which is just a six-minute walk from our Robinson Street Apartments (5556 Robinson Street).

 

Decorative pom-poms
