What do you do with clothes you don’t wear anymore?

Posted July 11, 2012, at 4:51 p.m.

We all have clothes in our closets that we never wear. Maybe they don’t fit or they’re out of style or you just got tired of them. Regardless, they sit in the closet gathering dust. After a while, we hand them off to family members or donate them to a variety of organizations. But what if we did something a little more creative with our unwanted garments?

The other day while browsing Pinterest, I saw a post about converting old T-shirts into loop scarves, and it got me thinking. How many clothes have I given away when I could’ve transformed them into something new? With that thought in mind, I’d like to know the creative ways that you use your old clothes, and then I’d like to share them with readers and inspire us all to be a bit more inventive.

So let the creativity flow! Experiment with old clothes, and if the result is good, let me know. If you happen to have pictures of your masterpiece, send those along, too.
