{she made it} jersey weave sweatshirt did you all have a good weekend? we pretty much got snowed in so during nap time I thought i'd scratch this little diy off my to-do list... This was the inspiration for this diy. i've had it pinned on pinterest for an eternity. so when I came across $3 sweatshirts at wal-mart the other day i felt like it was just meant to be. i resisted grabbing more than two (i am so bad when it comes to good deals) brought them home and gave them both a good wash and dry. the other one is white and i already have something in mind for it... like it? would love it if you pinned it :) For more fashion DIY posts simply click HERE.

DO IT YOURSELF: T-Shirt Weaving 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. I designed the weaving pattern myself, it is quite simple and if repeated a few times creates an interesting chevron stripe pattern on the sleeve. Hope you enjoy this tutorial, feel free to comment or message me with any questions. Can’t wait to see what you come up with! For more from me, please visit my personal blog, Le Petit Lapin **NOTE: When you get to the top of the sleeve, you can just cut the last loop and tie a small knot or bow.

Are there weaving errors occurring in the lower layers that can’t be detected until the entire weaving is completed? There are two intimidating aspects of double weave before even beginning to weave a project. After teaching many workshops on double weave and publishing several books on loom controlled double weave, I have tried out many teaching ideas on the workshop participants.
