And we all have tees that are just too special to cut up. But maybe they have a stain on them...or are starting to show signs of wear and tear. For those, we have some tee shirt crafts that are geared towards making your favorite unique tee shirts wearable again. This Upcycled Ruffled Shirt is a great way to breathe new life into those stubborn white tees. With some cheap t-shirts, you can create this beautiful top that looks like a designer made it!
