So I have a new obsession with Pinterest…yes I’m late to the game, but I usually am with all things computer. I LOVE all the DIY ideas on the site. And since I just moved and got rid of half my stuff and half my closest, I could use some inspiration to cheaply decorate my house and revamp my closet.
Between running races and my promotional modeling job I have a plethora of t-shirts in my closet that I only wear to bed or to the gym. But they are usually a last resort because I would rather wear a cute tank top instead of a t-shirt. Solution…make the tee into a TANK, genius. The original person to come up with this idea deserves a hug and a high five! I commandeered this idea from this beauty: http://dollarssenseandmore.
Step 1: Choose a shirt, one that is a little big and not form fitting seems to work better.
Step 2: Cut off the collar and the sleeves
Step 3: Make a cut down the middle of the front 2-3 inches, the deeper the sexier
Step 4: Do the same to the back of the shirt 2-3 inches
Step 5: Cut the sleeve holes about an inch from the neck line. (I did mine even in the front and the back, I think I am going to try another one making deeper cuts in the back so it’s a little sexier, bringing sexy back)
Step 6: Using the scraps from the sleeves cut an 8×2” strip of fabric. Pull at both ends of the strip until it curls up.
Step 7: On the back of the shirt, put the strip through both sleeves of the shirt and tightly wrap it around twice. Tie it with a double knot. (you can leave it like this or…) Wrap it around to the other side and tie another double knot. Pull really tight and cut off any remaining fabric.
