What? I'm sure you all think I have lost my mind - but hear me out.
Between the house projects I have been playing with recycling ideas for clothing. So in the spirit of the New Pioneer Style, I have come up with one more way to use those old t-shirts!
As you know I first started using the bottom half of the shirts to make a circular scarf, hand dyed and 100% cotton - bonus. (For sale here on the blog!)
Now, I give you the sleeves - yes, I said sleeves. I have taken the larger sizes, kept their shape and created a double function head scarf (bandana style) and neck scarf, warmer, etc.
I give you - The Dickie Headcase.
Remember the Dickie? You might have to be a Boomer to remember them, but I have fond memories of those turtlenecks that you could wear under anything. I liken this one to more of a lightweight neck warmer.
I was wondering if there was a market for these. I plan to wear them in the garden, with t-shirts in the summer, or to accent any other New Pioneer outfit I have.
I also thought these would be great for those with dreadlocks, making them a unisex item!
Have you got any ideas on other ways to wear them? Please share!
