Besides the two multi-colored shirts I did also use a yellow shirt and an old white one. I took a lot of pictures of the process which I will share but I am not really going to give step by step instructions as I am doubtful you will have exactly what I have to work with nor will you necessarily want to make exactly what I made. Hopefully though you might gain some ideas from the process to be able to use in whatever project you do want to work on.
I wanted the striped shirts to be the base of the garment so I did some holding up on myself and figuring out just how it might work best.
I decided to cut off the sleeves and neckline and V the neck as shown above.
Next I decided to work on straps. I cut the hem (plus some extra) off of the sleeves and then just folded and sewed it again so that it was sturdy.
I did also sew the side seams of the shirt in farther so that it wouldn't be gappy.
Next week I plan on sharing a list (with links) of a bunch of different ways you can re-purpose t-shirts. If you have written a post about re-purposing t-shirts I would love to know about it so I can add it to my list!
Or if you just have a comment or idea on re-purposing t-shirts I would love to hear them!
