Many of my t-shirts are no longer wearable and are just taking up way too space in my bedroom. Some of the things I've done with t-shirts in the past include making  a beach blanket (cut the best front or back with a 12" x 12" cardboard template and stitch together), t-shirt yarn (which I used to crochet a bath mat), and rag curlers. This time though I took the simple route and just cut a shirt into shop rags which I'll use for applying dye, dusting before adding a finish coat, or to clean up spills.

There are many books and websites devoted to making new fashions from old t-shirts, so think twice before you pitch those shirts away.
