Recycled T-Shirt Logos

These are recycled logos in their finest moment! A once stained t-shirt that was worn for many months has taken on a new life and the fabulous, glow-in-the-dark 'Henry + the Invisibles' logo will live again as a brand new tote bag. A once torn up, discarded hoodie is now the center of attention as a useful bucket to hold anything your heart desires.
All items are recycled with love and are sure to live a beautiful second life!

Here was my process for attaching the logo onto the canvas:
I carefully cut out the logo from the old t-shirt and ironed a Pellon Clear Fuse on the back. This way the logo would fuse to the fabric and not shift when placed on the front of the canvas. A zig zag stitch around the perimeter of the logo secures it in place.

For the sweatshirt, I used the same process as above, but I didn't waste the rest of the sweater material after I cut out the logo. It became the lining for the basket.

I'm know I'm not the only one with a favorite t-shirt that doesn't get any more use because of a tear or stain...but if you still love the image, I say give it a useful second life!
