    Title: Make It Last!

    Josh Peterson wrote a helpful article on how to make your clothes last longer which can definitely come in handy during these tough times! Check it out below or click here

    8 Ways to Make Your Clothing Last

    If you are practical, eco-savvy and smart, then you'll find ways to make your clothing last. Here are eight tips to help you along:

    1. Dry your clothes on low. Not only will this save energy, but it also extends the life of your clothing.

    2. Sew up holes ASAP. A little hole isn't such a big deal, but a little hole will become a big hole. Sewing up a hole as soon as you see it will make your clothing last longer.

    3. Save your buttons. Save every single button that you find. If your shirt comes with an extra button, save it. Also, if some clothes are so ragged that they cannot be reused, snag the button(s). This way, if you lose a button, there is a good chance that you'll have a matching button on hand.

    4. Wash clothes in cold water. This also saves energy. Most clothes wash just fine in cold water. Fabrics hold up better this way.

    5. Zip up your zippers before washing. You know how chickens eat gravel to digest food in their gizzards? Well, washing an unzipped zipper is kind of like gravel in a chicken's gizzard. Those zippers will flap around the washer and dryer, tearing at your other clothes.

    6. Wash your clothes less often. You don't need to wash your clothes just because you wore it once. Give it a sniff test and wear it again. It's not gross. It's smart.

    7. Cut out tags. Don't tear. I hate those little labels in shirts, when they tickle my neck. But resist the urge to pull them out. Gently cut it out with scissors, instead. You can cause a hole if you yank.

    8. Use a front-loading washing machine. Front loaders are gentler, and more energy-efficient, than top loaders.

    Title: 10 Cool Ways To.....

    Supriya Doshi from ChicagoNow.com wrote an awesome article on ways to reuse old t-shirts. So next time you throw away an old shirt think of these helpful hints! Read below or check Supriya's blog out here.

    T-shirt takeover: 10 ways to reuse your old shirts

    So, instead of donating the ones you like, but never wear, here are 10 ways to repurpose your T-shirts:

    1. T-shirt bag: This one is one of my favorites. Not only are you reusing something, you're getting something useful out of the deal too. It's pretty simple, and it could make a great gift or gift bag. Plus, you get to pick your pattern!

    2. Pillows: I'd totally take one of these on a road trip or plane, though I'd opt for the square pillow rather than the T-shirt-shaped one. And instead of buying stuffing, you can use the leftover shirt scraps and even entire shirts.

    3. Rags: This option is perfect if it's an ex's shirt or one that's too old to look good in bag or pillow form. No read directions for this one: Just tear or cut the shirt into pieces, or use it whole.

    4. Pet toys: If you're dog is less destructive than mine, these toys might work for you.

    5. Underwear: If you're a sewing whiz, here's a site with directions and a pattern for making your own undies from a shirt. Or, for less effort but more money, Solojones will do it for you.

    6. Wall art/decor: Some T-shirts are so cute they could be artwork. So make it happen! Frame your art in a shadowbox, or use it as fabric on chairs or other furniture.

    7. Quilts: Another option for you crafty ones. Quilts would make great gifts, and particularly soft shirts could end up as baby blankets

    8. Scarf: It's starting to cool down again in Chicago, but one of these should help you stay warm.

    9. Rag rug: Crocheting is a need-to-know for at least this tutorial on making a rug, but it might be worth learning for such an awesome, useful final product.

    10. Napkins: Be super-duper eco-friendly by turning decent quality shirts into cloth napkins. Just cut into rectangles and sew!

    Now that you've filled your house with T-shirt items, you might still have a few left. And you can't keep 'em all forever. So pick out a few and donate them so someone else can wear or reuse them!
