Recycled T Shirt Scrap Skirt

by Dinah Wulf

My little one LOVES to play dress up.

She’ll wear hats…sometimes more than one at a time.

She doesn’t discriminate on the TYPE of hat…

She loves sunglasses and purses…

She loves scarves…

She even wears fairy wings with her PJ’s around the house…

During my spring cleaning, I always bring out a couple boxes.  One for things I would donate and one for things I need to throw away. I noticed I had a ton of cheap (but colorful) old shirts that I was throwing away.

I decided to make a skirt that my daughter can wear to play dress up with. This project took no time at all.  This Recycled T Shirt Scrap Skirt doesn’t need to be perfect because it’s just for play and it’s very easy and inexpensive to make.

I purchased four child sized head bands at the dollar store for one whole dollar.

Simply place one headband around a large round vase or can.

Cut your recycled T-shirts at the desired length.  I cut different lengths.

One by one fold each scrap in half lengthwise and tie them in a knot around your headband as shown.

Here’s a picture of one of my daughter’s best friends playing dress up with it.

Try different colors, patterns, and fabrics.  The possibilities are endless.  You can use the same tutorial with tulle, to create a tutu as well!
