We update the wardrobe without costs: how to give the second life of the old thingQualitative jersey of T-shirts gives huge opportunities to those who peresthes old things with their own hands. Just look how the shape, appearance and even mood of these things change!

A black or gray T-shirt produces a very stylish top with slits. For this you will need only sharp scissors and half an hour of free time.

Mark two lines that will become the edges of futureSlits. Cut the fabric between them into strips with a width of 1.5 cm. Stretch the strips so that the knitted fabric is curled into tubules. Done! With the help of this simple technique, you can bring back to life the old demolished T-shirts, because for the punk style is what you need.

Making an open back for a T-shirt is easy. While you are still learning to change old things, put your hand on easy options that do not require special skill.

Now make two identical horizontal cuts of the back halves somewhere at the waist level, until the connecting side seams. Grasp the corners of the fabric and weave a short tourniquet out of them, then fasten it with a few stitches with the bottom corners. Get a very stylish top that you can not buy in the store.

How to solve something different from old things? Try to turn a bright T-shirt into a scarf-snood (in our opinion - a yoke).

Cut the top of the T-shirt along the line passing underSleeves. Stitch the edge or stretch the jersey to make a round roller. Trim the bottom of the t-shirt, freeing the future snud from the scar. Using sharp scissors, cut "Noodles"- strips 1.5 cm wide. Stretch the strips and tie them knots in staggered order in 2-3 rows.

You can make as many different snobs as you have bright old T-shirts or T-shirts.

Warm overall of an old sweater

If you have an unnecessary sweater made of soft wool, try to change from it a comfortable and warm overall to your baby for the winter.

Open the sleeves on the shoulder seam. Dissolve the side seam on each sleeve, leaving it intact for a length corresponding to the length of the baby's legs. The upper sleeve, that is, its ascent, cut in the middle in the form of a letter V. Sew both sleeves along a new V-shaped cut with an overhead seam or outward so that it does not press. Get pants with two slats - front and back.

Attach the straps for the shoulders, sweep the edges with a tie-back seam, tie it with a crochet or cover with an oblique tack.
