1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / How to resize an oversized t-shirt into a fitted top! on: December 13, 2013 10:54:39 AM
If you have some oversized t-shrits, you can resize it by cutting tabs along both sides. Plus, a Christmas themed snowflake cut out on the back Smiley

Video tutorial and written tutorial on my blog!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Get rid of your t-shirt's graphic and turn it into a backless top! on: November 06, 2013 10:19:38 PM
Do you have a t-shirt with a graphic on the front that you want to get rid of? You can cut it out and wear the t-shirt backwards as a backless top! Heres the t-shirt I started off with its a Gildan t-shirt, size medium, and made of 100% cotton.

Watch the video tutorial on YouTube: http://youtu.be/jDov3tU_oA0

1. Cut off neck and sleeves

2. Cut out the graphic starting at the neckline and now the front is the back of the shirt!

3. Use the sleeve you just cut off and cut out a skinny or wide strip up to your preference. If youre feeling creative, you can use a contrasting colour string or a different material (satin sash?)

4. Cut small holes in the left and right side near your shoulder blade

5. Thread the strip through both sides and tie a bow or knot

6. Cut the front neckline deeper to get rid of excess fabric

7. To create a v-neck, cut a small hole in the front of the shirt

8. Use a skinny string to scrunch up the front to create a v-neck

The final look!

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cut Up T-Shirt: 3 Columns on Back with Weaving and Bows on: October 16, 2013 01:51:53 PM
Hi everyone  Smiley

I'm new to Craftster but I've been making video tutorials for YouTube (http://youtube.com/salinabear) for about 3 years now on cutting up t-shirts so I thought I'd share with you guys! Here's a t-shirt I made recently:

Watch the video tutorial!

In this video, I explain how to cut three columns in the back of the t-shirt - two narrow on each side and one wide in the middle. You can choose to leave them as horizontal strips, weave all of them, or tie the middle strip into bows!

View more photos of my creation on Flickr!

Step 1: Cut off the neckline to your liking

Step 2: Plan out how wide you want each column

Step 3: Cut the two narrow columns on each

Step 4: Braid the two narrow columns using this tutorial -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nh2uwl1QRf4&feature=share&list=SP9680F0D62BB133EE

Step 5: Cut the wide column in the middle

Step 6: Your choice to customize the middle column. You could weave it or use another idea but I tied 3 strings together to make a "bow" look. I created strings from the bottom hem that I cut off in the beginning.

Step 7: Optional, but I cut off the first four strings to get rid of the logo and create a lower back

Done! Here's the before and after:
