BN Do It Yourself: Turn your Old Shirts into Something New



BN Do It Yourself - Bellanaija - June2013001It is known that fashion most often than not is recycled. The fads we loved in the 90’s are slowly but surely coming back to the runways; but why wait for a trend to come back around when you can start re-cycling now?

Can you count how many old t-shirts you have lying in your wardrobe just waiting for a death sentence? Well, instead of just throwing them away or leaving them to clutter your wardrobe you can still turn them into wearable and usable items.

Beauty and style blogger, AndreasChoice has a nack for turning old things into usable item and with this video, she shows us how we can do the same with our old T-shirts. From a shredded retro cut-out shirt to a ring older, press play to find out how you can up-cycle your old shirts.

Enjoy and don’t forget to let us know if you tried it.

    It’s so great to see people recycling stuff instead of throwing it all away. I usually use old T-Shirts to clean mechanical parts or wear them while painting. Andreas Ideas are of course a bit more sophisticated. To make braids using cloth strips is simple but genius and it certainly makes recycling very appealing. Thanks for sharing, i have to send this to my youngest daughter – i’m sure she’ll LOVE it!! 🙂

    BellaNaija should stop giving these you-tubers free publicity. My 2 cents.
