Well, Baby Girl is almost six months old, so that means I'm no longer pregnant, and I'm swimming in these t-shirts. Also, I'm kind of unwilling to part with some of them. I mean, not everyone has a Peachtree Road Race commemorative t-shirt, and my two are the only proof that I did actually finish the race. Twice. So, that means it's time to get crafty. I found this tutorial on Pinterest, and decided to turn my t-shirts into tank tops.
The process was pretty simple. Step 1: cut off the sleeves on the inside of the seam, cut across just below the neck, cut off the bottom seam, and cut off a strip about an inch wide. What we're left with is a t-shirt without a neck, sleeves or a bottom.
Step 2: fold over the new top of the t-shirt, and pin.
Step 4: thread the strip from the bottom through the new tubes, creating straps. I cut the bottom strip once, making it a long strap, and tied it over one shoulder. Fancy, huh?
Here is the finished product. A word of warning: be prepared to be possibly blinded. I am the whitest white girl in all the land. My skin apologizes to your eyes.
All things considered, I think it came out fairly well. The only thing I truly don't like about it is that I can't wear a bra with it. Well, I could, but it would look rather silly. It's definitely an "around the house" kind of tank top. The point is, I will probably turn a few more t-shirts into tanks. When I do, I'll most likely take more care in cutting straight lines and using the Singer properly.
