After the amazing success of my last t-shirt project (does the sarcasm read here?), I thought that I should try a simpler t-shirt craft. Plus, I own a ton of t-shirts that I rarely wear. The back story for the t-shirt I picked for this project: it is for the roller derby team my friend Sara plays on; but when I went to buy one at the bout, the merch table only had men’s sizes–seeing as I don’t get to go up to see her play often I went ahead and bought the too-big-for-me t-shirt. When I was digging for shirts to destroy last project, I got the idea to do this for this shirt (not the destroying, but the idea for this project).
I debated at first if I should do a different t-shirt for this post, kinda like a test run so I wouldn’t mess up a shirt I actually wanted to wear. Then I got ballsy and said “Ah, just go for it!” Man, I really need to be more cautious. Anyway, here we go!
I actually looked up a tutorial for this project but I remembered how to do this from my college days (sort of) after reading the post. However, if you want to do this project right you can read it here at Connect the Dotsons.
• oversized t-shirt
• safety pins (this was just to help me, they are not necessary)
Not pictured is the step where I tie up the side strips I made. I forgot to take that one. My bad.
