Intro: Modified T-Shirt From Your Oldies
Do you have a boring old T-shirt that desperately need a face lift?? Try this out for a new look... :-)
I have posted this in the Hurriecane contest too.
I am a day care mom who is working full time,and do not have enough time for my sewing and crafting work which I love it very much.If ever I win the laser cutter I will give up my full time job or reduce it to a couple of hours(because I do a lot of craft work with the kids and they will be dissapointed to see me no more)and start my own business at home as I have enough and more sewing orders which I can not do it on time.Every instructable I do with the help of the laser cutter,I will definetly post it on this great site.
Step 1: Materials Needed
Old T shirt
Sequins -Colour of your choice
Threads to match the sequins
Unpicker (not included)
Sewing Machine (Not included)
Step 2: Lets Start Cutting
Place T shirt flat on the table and cut the hem away.
From bottom take about 28-30 cm high and draw a line with a light coloured chalk.Depends on how high you want the cut.You can take it even higher.I marked up to my waist line.
Step 4: Cut! Cut! Cut!
Cut in stripes with 2.5 -3 cm spacing
Step 5: Pull! Pull! Pull!
Pull and stretch the strips
I wanted a bit longer sleeves ,so I removed the hem.If you don't want it ,then cut it off .
Same as in step 4 just cut in strips with 2.5-3cm spacing.
Same as in step 5 pull and stretch the strips
Oooops Sorry about the change of colour. taken from my phone as I was at work.

Do the knots.If you insert a medium size bead before you do the knots it will be nice.
Once you do the knots the sleeves become a little short,so it is up to your choice.
Draw your preferred design on your T shirt... I drew two hearts :)
Sew the sequins around, if you want you can fill the heart with sequins.
I sewed two little hearts on one sleeve too.....
