I’m always worried now when I have an idea for a DIY that one of the other DIY bloggers has already done it. Sadly I don’t have time any more to look at too many blogs so please know that if someone else has done this, it’s by complete coincidence that I have too. I have learned over the years of blogging that we DIYers tend to all think alike. So hopefully, this hasn’t been done before HOWEVER, the idea is not too far off from those hideously bedazzled sweatshirts from the 80′s old ladies used to wear… right? Pearl Encrusted Deep V t-shirt
Bow Back Shirt
If you saw my Santa wish list the other day, you know that I have my eyes on the Wildfox Couture heart jumper. After hours of ogling their website, I had an epiphany: I can make my own! [SIDENOTE: Since making my wish list just last week, the heart jumper is no longer available on their website...I think this DIY project is FATE :)] A white crew neck sweatshirt. Heart Sweatshirt
Fringe Top So I had this weird shapeless top/dress/long tank top(?) in my closet. The only thing I liked about it was the color. I decided it was time for a remake!
61K+ Recycle all of those tee shirts that you don't wear anymore! Make a comfy, cute scarf, its easy! STEP ONE: Grab a tee shirt and lay out flat. STEP TWO: Starting at the bottom, cut one inch wide rings. (You can use the hem if you want) You should get around 16 rings.
Copy Your Favorite Tee - CraftStylish Photo: Jack Deutsch When you sew your own T-shirts, you can refine the fit, alter necklines and shape to flatter your figure, and make tops in the perfect fabric. What's more, when you've found that favorite T-shirt-the one that makes you feel great every time you wear it-you can reproduce it in every color for every season and add a variety of special details along the way. Once you learn how to make a pattern from your favorite T-shirt, you can copy the fabulous fit and shape into any knit you like. For summer, try a light tissue knit like the one shown here.
It was Red Ribbon week at my daughter's school this week and their first dress up day was tie dye t-shirts and wouldn't you know she didn't have anything tie dye in her closet. So we decided to do a little art project together and make something with what we had on hand. I have seen several different examples and directions for this on the internet so we took what we found from various searches and modified it just a little bit. Here's what you'll need and the steps we followed: Pre-washed white or light colored t-shirt (cotton takes color great)Rubbing Alcohol (Note: mine was 91%.
This is the big bow pillow I made yesterday. I started with this tutorial to make the actual bow. Although I made both the bow and the middle piece much much wider. I wanted a big fatty bow. Really, it’s just a big tube with a small tube wrapped around it. Super simple.
I finally convinced my boyfriend to purge his clothes! What resulted was a large stockpile of old t-shirts, work shirts, sweats, old golf shirts and more. I considered donating them - but wondered if there was anything I could do to repurpose this new-found loot. Repurposed Old T-Shirt Pajamas
February 6, 2010 1:59 pm Per popular demand, here is the Pratia tank tutorial! Start off with a t-shirt or tank top. What I did was get a larger t-shirt so I could gather it at bottom like the pratia tank. I cut off the sleeves so it would be a tank. Measure your neckline and get a piece of chiffon that length and fold it in half.
This cowl neck top is quite easy to make. It has only four seams and you can create the pattern yourself. The cowl neck comes from making the neckline of the shirt wider at the front than the back – this extra fabric hangs down creating the drapey neckline. The folds in the sleeves come from extra fabric as well, which is added by angling the shoulder seam upward. You will need: Measuring tape ⅔ yard stretchy fabric (I used a cotton/lycra jersey) Matching thread Sewing machine Chalk (or pencil and large paper to make a pattern) Pins (optional) The first step in making this top is to measure yourself.
I have a lot of t-shirts. Long sleeved, short sleeved, too small, too big…. I especially have a lot of oversized t-shirts that I like to wear as tunic dresses. Because I have quite a few, I find it difficult to style them without being repetitive. So, inspired by books such as Generation T and Youtube tutorial experts like itsblitzzz and secretlifeofabionerd, I decided to try my hand at some t-shirt reconstruction.
After posting my first entry last week I have gotten a bit scissor happy! lol......If it's knit and not being used to it's full potential, it's fair game! :) "KnotTEE" refashion tutorial....Made by Rae Spring Top challenge #2
Loose Fitted T-shirt Tutorial May 31, 2010 8:03 am I got a lot of questions on how to make this simple shirt: It’s super easy! I got some cotton t-shirt material and cut out a pattern this shape.
