I did cut up and re-purpose the tee shirt. I used a quilted flower from several years ago to patch the hole in the back, cut the front open to eliminate a stain, shortened and shaped the back to make ties, and did a lettuce hem. The original idea was to use it over sleeveless tops, but it turned a little chilly and I had on a long sleeve shirt.It would have worked better, perhaps, if the tee hadn't been a small, but maybe I'll play with a medium next time. I know I have a medium tee that I put in a bag for Goodwill, but I'm not sure if it was in the bag I delivered, or the bag that is STILL sitting in the garage.
The top works well either tied or untied, but I wanted to be able to tie it, because sometimes at yoga the room is chilly until you get warmed up. Being able to tie it makes it easy to practice in.
There is some strange sort of satisfaction in taking an item that is stained or just tired out (as tee shirts are prone to become) and doing something with them. I had a lot of fun embroidering old tees this summer.
What items have you re-purposed? I know a lot of people transform tee shirts in many ways! I need more ideas!
