Easy DIY Tutorials to Update Your Old T-Shirts This Summer

Even those of us who don’t shop very often surely have a drawer full of old t-shirts they don’t really wear anymore. Whether they’re too big, too small, or just look really worn out, it’s easy to amass a collection of shirts that only have one purpose: to collect dust.

But this summer, spend some of your free time turning those shirts into something useful. It’s a great way to save money and to create something awesome out of something not-so-awesome. There are tutorials for making dingy t-shirts into a t-shirt you want to wear again, into a cool tank, a swimsuit coverup, bags, or even headbands. Want to get into some DIY stuff this summer? Here are 25 easy ways to update your old t-shirts right now:
