Are you thinking about recycling your old clothes to make new designer wear and don't know how to begin? Why not start with your tees and sweats. Fabrics that don't ravel or fray when you cut them up are easy to work with. You can fearlessly take tees and other knit garments apart without worrying about the raw edges. (Plus, one of the best ways to figure out how to sew things back together is to take them apart.) If you need some inspiration, check out Tips from the Trade at for some creative ideas and tips to get you going!
