Upcycling tank tops

Living in the tropics where it is constantly warm, I wear tank tops all year round so have a plentiful supply of ones that are getting worn and stretched and are ripe for a good upcycle!

So here are some ideas on what to do with tank tops:

First of all some refashions 
- making new clothing items

Or making the tops into something different...

Or you could simply use the fabric

Most recently, I used the slogans from the front of four of my old sporty tank tops that had become too stretched and worn to wear, and made these 4 things!

A sports duffel bag, a yoga mat bag, a large tote bag and a cushion!

I'm collecting all the ideas I find for upcycling tank tops on my Tank Top Upcycling Pinterest Board.
