Pinned It, Made It! Monday ~ Remodel Your T-Shirt!

Hey everyone!  Time for Pinned It, Made It! Monday.  :)

Pinned It, Made It! Monday is a weekly "meme" my Mama (Country Girl at Home) made for bloggers to share something that they pinned on Pinterest and actually followed through with.  :)


You have a T-shirt.  It's cute, or you like the message or graphic on it.  You'd like to wear it out in public, but...alas, it's too big!  Baggy, over-sized (and not in the "fashionable" way, either), and just plain large.

Pinterest to the rescue!

My blogging friend Shelby posted this on her blog, and I pinned it onto my Pinterest and decided to try it.  Thanks for the idea, Shelby!  :)

The original pin from Shelby's blog.
SO.  You'll need:

A loose, large, big, over-sized tee
Scissors that will cut fabric

And that's it!  Lay out your T-shirt on a table or other flat surface.

I used my Captain America shirt.  I love it, but it's a little loose-fitting.  I was a bit nervous about cutting it because (as we all know) I LOVE Captain America, but I was happy with the result.  :)

Begin cutting medium-sized indents from right above the hem of the tee up to the armpit.  These will be the strips you use to tie your tee into a nicer style.

Do so on both sides.  Then begin tying the pieces together into a knot, starting at the bottom.  Make sure to double-knot them.  I made the mistake of not doing so in the beginning, and when I put the shirt on, all the knots came undone.  :P  Mama helped me double-knot them after that.  ;)

Once the pieces are all tied together, you are DONE!  :)

That's it for today, folks!  :)  Be sure to check out the poll over there on my sidebar.  :)

Have a great day and God bless!
Joy :)
