T-shirt re-styling. The pinterest way.
Firstly, the old t-shirt. I got an old one I have worn til it’s faded and it’s been in the bottom of my drawer forever, or at least since I lost a lot of weight a few years back.
Cut the sleeves off, and then straight across, just below the neck/collar.
And then fold the top inch over on the front and back and sew across to create a place to thread your strap. Yes. I got the sewing machine out. I didn’t change the thread though. I had nothing to match so figured white would do.
Then I got the old neck-band from the t-shirt, cut it once to make a long strip and I threaded it through the front and back of the -tshirt, using a skewer, pencil or knitting needle.
And then. Then you realise magic has happened. You have this. Oh yes. Lovin’ it.
At which point my hubby walks past, stops, and says “Pinterest, right?” haha oh yes.
A few tips, firstly, don’t use your super tight t-shirts. Baggy is better. I think also next time I do this, probably in about 5 minutes despite the lack of dinner, still, I’ll look for a t-shirt to do this with, I’ll try and find one with a logo down as low as I can, because as you can see I ended up with the ‘Wisconsin’ word around my neck – a lower logo would have been better.
Look at the possibilities. Like using strips of material taken from the sleeves and plaiting the neck cord. Tying bows at the shoulders. Cheap dollar plain coloured t-shirts that all of a sudden become freakin amazing.
Oh yes. Pinterest. I think I love you.
