Kat von D wears these pretty cool slashed up tshirts with holes in them, I bought a tshirt that Im going to reconstruct into something simular. I was just wondering if there is any advice in how to go about making the holes? Do I need to do anything special to make them work out? How far apart should the holes be so that they dont rip apart. Sorry but I have never done anything with cloths before so Im a little out of my element. Most of my crafts are paintings and other randoms. thanks in advance !!

Heres some pictures so you know what Im talking about:

Seriously, just start slashing a t-shirt. If it works, then awesome, if not, you didn't lose much. All you need is a t-shirt and scissors. I've been cutting a lot of t-shirts lately. It's a lot of fun, but it's really trial and error.

T-shirts are very forgiving to work with.  Just remember...it is always easier to cut a little bit more off.  Try not to cut too much at first.  Make your first cuts, try it on and see what you think, then adjust as needed.
