First DIY Pinterest Clothing Project

I have an ongoing addiction to pinterest.

I thought it would die out.

I can go days without pinning anything but if I ever find a free moment, I am a pinning maniac.

Recently I found this pin.

Easy peasy, yes?

I thought so too.

I set off on my first DIY clothing pinterest project.

No sewing required... that is just my speed.

I began with a plain white tee of Ryan's.

There is a stack of about 7800 Hanes white t-shirts in the closest.

I am sure he will not miss one.

That is until he reads this and then I am sure I will have used his most favorite white Hanes t-shirt ever.

Anyway, I took picture with the iPad as I did this.  They are not the best quality but they work.

Here is what I started with.

Next, I cut a semi-straight line right under the armpits of the shirt.

Gosh that is a wrinkled shirt.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Now, you cut strips in the bottom of the shirt.

I tried to keep them a pretty even width but it is not necessary.

Now pull each strip.

I also knotted the ends of every other one just to spice it up a little.

Throw it over your head and voilà...

Ignore my fizzy hair.

Looks good! I have been wanting to try this one, but since I already destroyed a couple of Jackie's tees doing other pinterest projects, I decided against it! haha
