Most of us have clothes that are not really that old that we can’t wear them anymore, but maybe a little out of fashion, or too loose, and wearing it doesn’t look nice anymore. The most common things we do with those – tear them up and use as rags, hand it over to street kids, or simply throw away (I am guilty too!).
But not anymore. Did you know there is actually so much you can do with your old clothes that won’t just look super cool, but is also extremely functional and will let you reuse what you have and avoid creating unnecessary waste.
I came across this fun tutorial online and thought it would be great to share it here with you all. So here’s a quick look.
