DIY Weaving T-Shirt

Hi Friends!

It’s Friday and I’m feeling great. I’ve been washing and cleaning the house like a mad woman, that’s what you get when you leave for 3 weeks. There are dust bunnies everywhere. Ugh

Let’s throw some DIY fun into the mix. I have a closet full of T-shirts that I plan on cutting up. A few were too cute to pass up, some I  outgrew. Today we are addressing this problem. My favorite shirt has a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the front of it. I brought it at a skate shop that was going out of sale. The shirt does nothing for my figure, but we can change that with a few simple, or not so simple, cuts. 

I found this tutorial at www.daretodoityourself.blogspot.com and I had to try.

I also found a few other projects I’m dying to complete.  I’ll keep you guys updated on my upcoming projects. 

Do you remember this trench coat from kill bill? I do and I want it now! I’m going to start looking for a trench coat, get it fitted to my liking, then I’ll try not to ruin it by drawing all over it. This girl makes everything look so simple.
