As a follow up from my previous blog post, I’ve found some pretty amazing things you can do with old/thrifted clothes (some even I have never even thought of!). Not only can you easily restyle old/thrifted clothes with a pair of scissors and some thread, you could also repurpose them into these awesome and handy household goods!

How cool are these ideas? So before you’re about to chuck out some old clothes that you no longer want to wear, or you find a shirt with a stunning pattern or colour at a thrift shop but you just can’t picture yourself wearing it, think of all the cool things you can do with them!
Do you guys have any other awesome ideas to repurpose clothing? I would love to know what you guys think!
