Macramé T-shirt Pattern using Old Shirts

This summer, I thought it would be fun to create a macramé t-shirt using one of my old shirts. To be honest, there was a rip at the bottom of the shirt, and so I was trying to think of a way that I could up-cycle the shirt and still wear it. Now I am sharing my DIY macramé t-shirt pattern so that you can also make this awesome t-shirt design at home.


This pattern is the perfect way to give any old shirt some new life! If you have an old shirt and you're getting a bit tired of it, this is an exciting way to jazz it up and make it feel like you have a new item in your wardrobe. It is the perfect up-cycle project!

What you will need for the DIY Macramé T-shirt Project:

  • An old t-shirt that you don't mind cutting up! A loose fitting shirt works best.

  • Scissors

You will also need to learn how to create the following knot, click on the knot to be taking to a free video tutorial:

- Square Knot


Watch the full tutorial below to see how I created this macramé t-shirt using an old shirt, and follow along to make one for yourself at home.


I hope to see some of you out there showing off these shirts in style soon ;)


Here's to finding our peace in creativity!
