Easy DIY: Cut out t-shirt


"You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality."
- Walt Disney 

I have another DIY for you today, this time a lot easier than my previous necklace one (more a labour of love 
than anything else). I got the idea for this from a photo I saw on tumblr but there was no instructions so I had
 to figure out my own.

You will need: 
- scissors
- a pen
- a t-shirt you are prepared to destroy


It's pretty straight forward so I don't feel like I need to elaborate much on any of the steps. The only thing I will say is
 make sure you try it on at each step to check that things, especially the sleeves, are where you want them. I know from 
past projects sometimes they can go a bit squew-wiff pretty fast so its better to figure it out before you cut too much.

Ellen just went thrift shopping and got a shirt she wants to try do this with when she gets some time after exams, so 
I'm excited to see how hers turns out!!

If you give this a go please comment below with links to photos, I'd love to see it!
Also if you have any questions, leave those down below too ^.^

  2. I love such idea!!! But also try to pull all these lines which you cut to make them thinner and roll them insight :) after it they will look more polished:)
