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.

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!
