I made one out of an ugly shirt my aunt gave me for christmas... I made a few changes to it but loved the simplicity. It's going to make a great bike riding shirt or cute enough to go out with friends. I used the bottom heam of the shirt as a headband. And I use the shirt sleeves to make small traveling bags
