yay! i made this all by myself! i was getting tired of looking for a tutorial like i wanted, so i just got up from the computer and figured it out for myself. i used a stitch i hadnt tried before.. it is black supposedly decorative stitching and i might do the same thing to the neckline. so i had a little trouble w/ the stitching, but im still very happy! any and all comments please!

Thanks. I got the shirt from a friend who it didn't fit... but she didn't go to Merrytime Nursery School so I'm not sure how she got it.  And I just noticed that there are black thread pieces on the back of the shirt in my picture. Pardon my threads.  Tongue

i got a request for instructions and what started out as one picture to help me explain turned into a tutorial. my first ever, it was kind of fun  Tongue so i figured i might as well post it, right? i hope it makes sense to everyone. ask me q's if it doesn't.

That shirt is so cute, I love it. I would love a tutorial on how to do it cuz I have a ton of tennis shirts that could be changed into racerbacks. But anyway, good job!!!

Oh, I love racerbacks! Very cute! I'd love to see a tutorial on it as I'm worried my racerback would come out all funny w/o a little guidance Tongue Thanks and nice job Smiley

Very cool! I would have never thought to have done that to one of my t-shirts! Nice job.

Thanks for the idea, my cheer squad was donated a bunch of black crew neck tshirts and I was trying to decide what to do with them, the girls will love these for practice and I will make them some cute bootie shorts.!!!
