Re-Design an Old T-Shirt

blog 99

First, pick the t-shirt that you are going to re-work. Any designs or writing on the shirt will just add an extra touch when you’re done.blog 045

My cat likes recycling, too.

Then, mark where you want the fringes to start and cut all the way around the shirt with strips about a half an inch wide and up to the point you picked.blog 047

When you have a strip cut, tug on it a bit and the t-shirt will curl, giving it the desired look.

When you are finished with the strips, make sure that they are cut evenly all the way around and that they are curled

After this, tie a knot in the top of all of the strips

When you have tied these knots, we move on to the next kind on knot tying
