- scissors
- sewing things (needle , thread)

First of all cut the the band off the bottom of the shirt, (some tops don't have them.)
then cut the sleeves off
then cut the neck out
your t shirt should now look like a tank top

Step 3:

turn the top over so the neck is on the back
cut to the side of the middle and then to the side when you get near the bottom then do the same on the other side so you end up with a big strip in the the middle
(this is quite hard to explain it's easier to look at the pic)
