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
Here's a simple one - fixing up a top that had a baggy bottom with some simple shirring by Meggipeg:
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.
