My boyfriend was going to throw that shirt away because it had pit stains on it (lol sorry). I said no, and turned it into this, then made a huge gray band and sewed it on the top Smiley


bad picture of the back:

Very cute.  I really like the length of the pieces tied in the back.

That is very cute. I love to turn old tees into new designs. It's so much fun.

I love it. I would love to know how you made the length in the back like that?

I just cut out a piece of gray jersey fabric about 6.5 inches wide and 5 feet long or something (I just used the length of the fabric I had), and made a tube out of it (to where it was about 3 inches wide). Then, I sewed it all along the top of the tube top, leaving one side a bit longer than the other so they wouldn't be the same length when tied up.

Hope that helps, if it's confusing let me know Smiley
I'm sure there are more technical words to use, but I obviously do not know them!
