Revamp your T-shirt

Tired of wearing your t-shirt as it is? This is a new way on how to revamp your simple tee into a striking top! It will just take a couple of minutes to do!

WHAT YOU NEED:

Scissors, Pencil, Ruler, Needle and thread, Piece Ribbon, T-shirt

 STEP 1: Before we start cutting our shirt, we first measured. Measure the length and width of the hull and just think how many strips you want to cut.
STEP 2: My shirt was 55 cm long and I wanted 5 strips, every 11 cm so I put a dot down so I knew where I had to cut.
STEP 3: Decide how long you want each strip. Turn left and then right a point, so you know how far you can cut!
STEP 4: Fold your shirt in half and start cutting. Please make sure the front you do not cut it!
STEP 5: If you've cut, you do not scare if it is not as straight cut. Stretch the tip a bit, this ensures that the cut edges a little curl, now you see not that it's a bit crooked cut.
STEP 6: Take a thin ribbon (I have the piece of ribbon from my shirt which cut it in the store on a hanger is hung) and put a loose knot. Now take the ribbon that you will use as decoration. Roll it to the cut strip and determine how long it should be. Cut and sew the ribbon onto each other.
STEP 7: After you have sewn the ribbon, turn the sewn part to back so the pretty side is visible. Sew the ribbon now onto the shirt. Repeat these steps.
Tada! You have turned your boring plain shirt into a striking top! So easy right?
