10 Things You Can Do With T-Shirts Besides Wear Them

Did spring cleaning leave you with a pile of college tees that you don’t know what to do with? The internet is here to help you refashion them into prettier and/or more practical things (alternatively, donate them).

Does anyone actually "spring clean," or do they just look around their cozy winter nests and think about cleaning, then snuggle further down into their blanket?

Anyway, some of these projects are better suited to plain tees, while others lend themselves to printed versions. Consider yourself duly warned: for many (but not all!) of these projects, you'll need a needle, thread, and spare time. Maybe they can keep your hands busy while you re-watch all of Game of Thrones before the new season starts -- just don't accidentally sew your fingers to the fabric.

Fair warning from the blogger: “while this rug was super inexpensive to make with the resource of money- it was very costly in the resource of time.” It's so lush, though. Directions available here.

Perhaps the most efficient means of storing all of your wearable high school or college memories in one place, the quilt makes a great picnic or stargazing blanket. You can find DIY directions here....but if you don't feel like learning how to quilt, you can get one made here.

This technique doesn't even require sewing. Neither does this one.
