While we’re thinking of ideas for refashioning my pile o’ polo shirts into useful and beautiful gems, I put together a list of ways to use my other pile o’ shirts (button downs). Get ready, folks! It is absolutely phenomenal to see what the creative geniuses of the world can do with a men’s button down shirt… Raid your husband’s closet, ladies (or if you live in Denver, come to my house and peruse my pile!), or head off to Goodwill to find a shirt and use these fabulous tutorials to start repurposing!
