Let you're inner designer out!
I have over the years accumulated a large number of t-shirts, many of which are too small for me now. I feel that it's a waste to throw away perfectly good t-shirts and so i try to come up with ways of using outgrown ones. Most of my t-shirts end as rags in my workshop, pitylessly tossed to the floor and used till the last threads of life are sucked out of them... That was until i had this idea!
These days designer shirts with cool prints on them tend to go for a pretty penny.
I decided to create my own.
Step 1: What you're going to need
You can use your own, or buy cheap ones at a second hand store or garage sale.
A sewing machine. This is not obligatory but it helps a lot on time saving.
For you who don't have one sewing by hand is a skill (if you don't already know) should learn.
Other things you should know:
Time- between 10 minutes and 3 hours (depending on how creative you decide to get)
Difficulty- fairly easy
Fun factor/creativity level- Heaps of it!
Step 2: Lets get started!
First you're going to want to choose a base t-shirt to work on.
Choose a good looking, well fitting t-shirt from you're collection.
This is going to be the t-shirt you attach all the cutouts you are about to make from the selection of t-shirts you want to use.
Step 3: Choose a style-let your creativity loose!
You can make it reflect you're personality. Remember. Your only limit is you're creativity!
You can make any combination of the t-shirt cutouts at hand that you can imagine!
Sketch out designs based on the possible cutouts you can make from the selection of t-shirts you have at hand.
Make the cutouts:
Carefully cut out the prints you want making sure to leave enough space around them for sewing around.
