How to Make an Old T-Shirt Interesting Again

If you happen to have an old T-shirt which seems to be no longer interesting, you can try to improve it and make it look nicer.
  1. The easiest way - find a decorative element and sew it on your T- shirt. Well, if you are not good at handling a needle, get an applique badge which you iron on with heat, to attach it to the surface.
  2. Another way of decorating a boring piece of clothing is painting it. And this is what I enjoy most!
  3. Simply choose a pattern you like and have fun (doing the painting) :-). 
  4. When you do not like the effects of your work, all in all, it is just an old T-shirt. You can wear it at home only or throw it away. Just dare to be creative.
See what I have done!
First, I sewed on the apple badge

Then I painted some flowers - a Kashubian pattern of course.....
Later I painted more flowers...

And here it is!
An old - new T-shirt

The back is a result of: do what you feel like doing ;-)
Hope you like it as much as I do.

See my other 'hand-painted projects' here.


  1. I am definitely a needle and thread kind of girl and we have a lot of old t-shirts, this looks perfect and easy.

    1. Glad you like it. You can decorate your T-shirt as you like one side/front only.... Have fun :-)
