Introduction: Transform a T-shirt Into a Cute Tank Top

About: My name is Tiffany, feel free to call me Tiff. I love to sew&& Ive also got the most wonderful boyfriend ever (: Recreating clothing into other things like , sweaters into tote bags , yeahh thats what i do ...

(: this is what your tank will look like in the end (:

Step 1: .001

First get all the materials you will be needing to make your tank
1. old tshirt ( tmnt are so boss)
2. scissors
3. pins
4. tape measure
5. thread
6. sewing needle
7. sewing machine (:
8. buttons (optional)
 

Step 2: .002

 + cut off collar and sleeves.
+ cut the sleeves right under the seam as well as the collar.
+ keep the sleeves and set them aside.

Step 3: .003

+ flip shirt inside out  and stich back and forth at the top of the tank sleeve, so that it is strong and wont tear out.

Step 4: .004

+ bow time (:
+ get those sleeves that you saved and cut a piece of fabric about 2and a half inches.

next
+  squeeze the fabric in the middle
+ pin and then sew down the middle back and forth a few times  (:

Step 5: .005

+ cut a little piece of the fabric
 

Step 6: .006

+ that little piece of fabric which you just cut will overlap part of the bow so you wont see the part that was sewn.

Step 7: .007

+ sew piece of fabric together ( kinda blurry sorry :| )

Step 8: .008

+ pin the bow onto your shirt (:

Step 9: .009

+ hand sew the bow on to your shirt (:
 
+  then youre going to cut the excess fabric right at the seam.

Step 10: .010


 :] now you've got a cute tank top with bows !
