DIY T-shirts Ideas (The Huge List!)

In a closet, or in a pile, we all have a stash of t-shirts. We bought T-shirts and other products as one way of engaging the world of design. Deciding what styles you like, or what messages you want to share with other people, or what bands or companies you want to advertise on your chest, are all decisions about design and communication.

But T-shirts has their cycle, they don’t last forever, they fade, stretch, get stained, and maybe the tees stay the same but the you change size, or  taste. That’s why do-it-yourself is everywhere.

People are making DIY T-shirts themselves with some ideas like to save money, to customize goods to suit their exact needs and interests, and sharing it with other people. And there are loads of tutorials out there with interesting ideas for how to recycle your t-shirts into something ‘new’. These are some DIY T-shirts collection ideas worth noting:



Ryonet’s Screen Printing Starter Kit (Buy at Amazon) gives you everything you’ll need to start screen printing t-shirts and much more in one affordable package.

    Love your clever and frugal ideas! I write a frugal living blog with a huge Pinterest following (33,000), and I’d love for you to write a guest post featuring a few of your ideas. Of course, you can include a link back to your site. If you’d rather not write a guest post, please let me know if I could use a few of your t-shirt images and descriptions and link back to your site for directions. Thanks!
