{almost} No Sew T-shirt Makeover


Three posts in two days?! I guess I’m making up for the like three weeks I was caught up in that whole life thing.

So, back to why I’m writing.

I’m a jeans & tee kinda girl. Always have been.

I go to Kohl’s, find the same cotton crew I always get, and get one of every color…

Then I realize I can’t spend $200 on shirts and I put at least half of them back. (There’s only so many shades of blue and grey you need)

On to the tutorial I found

DIY Braided Neck Tee

This is hands down amazing. I wanted to start the post before I forgot, but I’m about to time myself making this.

Ready, set, Go!

This is the shirt I literally just took off my back.

I cut out the neck because I didn’t think it would look right.

Snipped around just like the tutorial said…

And in less than 10 minutes had this!

I’m going to touch up the extra fabric on my left side so that they’ll be more even,

but Holy Smokes! That was super easy, and now my 1-of-30 solid tees has a little more “Ta-dah!”

Hope this sparks an inspiration to do something you love.
