Step 1: Cut...

First, get a T-shirt.

Draw a line up the middle with a fabric pen.

Get your scissors and cut up the shirt along the line you just made.

Then, cut off the sleeves along the seam.

Step 2: ...and Sew!

Place the sleeves on the bottom of the shirt, as shown, for pockets.

Pin and sew...

and you're officially too cool for school!
How can you stop the cut edges from fraying? is it just a matter of folding the cut edges and sewing them closed?
