I'm so bored of old, plain Tshirts, and I'm sure ya'll are too (which is why we're all reconstructing, right? XP )
I saw a tutorial of how to braid tshirts on youtube recently, and I was like OMG I HAVE TO TRY THAT!
So... heres my result:


the back. I LOVE THE BACK Cheesy


the front. It's kind of blurry >< but you can see the curlicue I made out of braid :]
of course, that makes the shirt bunch up kind of weirdly, but its okay! =]


closeup on the braid


yup. I'm thinking of more, unique ways to utilize this technique. ^__^

That's awesome. I love how different yours is, all I've ever seen before is the long rectangles. how do you finish off the ends so they don't come undone??? I haven't figured out how to do that yet?  Is there a specific tutorial online you used?

Oooo, cool!
I looked it up: was it this tutorial?

also: surprise, it's knitting! Wink That's exactly how you pick up a dropped stitch -- you're technically knitting your shirt, not braiding it, I spose. That's super cool!

I love the curvy design you did -- it looks awesome.

Thanks for the inspiration!

for the curlicue bits I cut them about a cm wide, then used needle nose tweezers (kinda?) to pull the loops through. Its about 200x faster with tweezers LOL

I take a bit of white thread, and I sew the last loop onto the shirt :]


thanks for all the love guys! <3

That looks so amazing!  I feel like you could speed up that technique 100x if you use a crochet hook - because it really is just like picking up a dropped stitch in knitting. Cheesy  Great job!

i know that if you do that all the way down a few times, it tightens a shirt....I imagine since it bunches the shirt in odd places that it does tighten the shirt a bit.
