Upcycle Your Old Jerseys

If you have been part of a sports team for a number of years, there is a good chance that you have a number of different sports teams shirts or jerseys laying around your house. If you want to get creative with those jerseys or sports teams shirts, make headbands or re-usable bags!  By creating t-shirt bags or headbands, you are able to both explore your creativity skills and help out others in your community by donating them!

This project will allow students to think outside of the box. It will encourage the student to look at a simple object (in this case a t-shirt or jersey) and try to visualize it as something completely different. This could be the perfect project to help lead students to looking at something in their life and seeing it as a completely new perspective.

Supplies: Old t-shirts, scissors, rulers. And if you believe you have the capability to use needle and thread then you can use that as well, but it is not necessary to.
