Make That Plain T-Shirt Stylish For FREE

This was quite a stretch for me!  So if I can do it, anyone can.  I saw this t-shirt redo on a post last week and was so excited about the possibility that I started digging through my closet immediately for the perfect shirt.

I couldn’t find a shirt right away to do the project with but I did find, 2 baby doll tank tops I had bought last year on clearance,  for $1.50 each.  You know how I promote buying clothes in the off season?  Well, its still a good idea, just don’t wait until the middle of August to dig them out.

Not only that I found a pair of shorts I had bought in May.  Alright enough about my lost clothing and bad memory..

I finally found a shirt that I could redo.  Sorry about the pics, since I have not done anything like this I wasn’t set up with a good place to hang them.  But you will get the idea.

I took this t-shirt cut the neck out to make it bigger, then cut it down the middle left.

Then I tied a knot on the inside.  I sewed the ends down to keep them from flying around, and wha la, there it is.  A brand new shirt, in style even, and it was FREE.

Side Note: I just looked up wha la to make sure I spelled it correctly, and I did.  I also learned it’s a bastardized english version of the French word “voila” meaning “there it is”,  often used by morons in an attempt to sound more intelligent.

Alright, now you have a craft to try and a little education.  Your welcome.  🙂  The fact that this wasn’t a fail is a Finer Thing in life.

Looking for other ways to redo an old t-shirt, check out my friends blog.  She made one into a tank and one into panties (you know you want to see that one).

If you did something crafty this week leave your link in the comments.  I like seeing what others are up to.
