Gosh…! These days I’m so busy with work that I don’t have time to sew. I have about 10 old t-shirts to do new projects, and I have ideas for each of them, and believe I’m looking forward to carry them out and post the results here.
Instead of designing and sewing I’m working hard to introduce changes in my life: I’m trying to finish my dissertation with all my might, I’m sending resumes to the companies I like to get the job of my dreams, and I’m thinking about becoming emancipated. It’s easy to imagine how this would improve my life… Don’t think I’m not happy right now, but it’s time for a change!
By the moment, I show you my last project. I have no tutorial for this one, but is very very easy. Whatever fate has in store for me, I’ll wait it with a pretty t-shirt on 😉
Inspired by this video posted in ThreadBanger, I transform a t-shirt using only my scissors (without sewing). The original T-shirt was this:
1- Fisrt, I cut the neck about 3cm away from the original neckline, as you can see in the picture:
2- I cut two strips at the bottom of the t-shirt. This way, I made the t-shirt shorter (it was very long) and I got two strips that I’d use later on:
3- I cute the sleeves along the length, without detach them from the t-shirt, as you can see in the picture:
4- I made two small cuts at both sides of the t-shirt, at waist level. Then, I put one of the strips through both holes.
6- Finally, I cut the other strip in half and with the two resulting strips I tied the shoulders of the t-shirt.
7- To wear it, you only have to tight the t-shirt to the waist with the strip, and made a bow behind. This is the result:
Last Saturday was my birthday, and… what did my wonderful boyfriend give me as a present??? Yes!!! Generation T!!! 120 new ways to transform a T-shirt!!! Inspiration, inspiration, inspiration… I’m looking forward to doing one of the projects, and of course I’ll post the process!
