All right ladies and gents, how many of us have husbands with old worn ours tshirts?! I do! Let’s take these old rags and turn them into something useful for us! Like some new workout clothes. Yes! Ready?! Let’s do this!

Oh the old dingy husband tshirt. Either we use them for rags…throw them out or you could create your own cute work out clothes. Don’t get me wrong, you could just use a brand new shirt, but this is an upcycle! So let’s get to it!

I start by cutting around the neck with very sharp scissors. I cut down from the thicker neck edge to make it easier and for a cleaner cut. Ok, that was easy!

I now cut five triangle shapes from each sleeve as shown. Make sure you keep the pointed end intact, but if you do cut it you could cut all of them and tie each one back together.

This is the finished look. For a tighter fit I tied a knot on the one end. It’s definitely back in style again😆

I love the way the triangles drape on the sleeve. It’s a very cool look! I hope you try this thrifty shirt tutorial and all you needed was some sharp scissors! Who knew?! ✂️
