why do you wear the same t-shirts every day when there are many DIY t shirts ideas to transform your regular t-shirt into new and different. They are super easy and only take five minutes to complete. And the most importantly it doesn’t require sewing skill. Here, I’ll show you two DIY t shirt cutting ideas to transform your boring t-shirt into something you love to wear every day.
cut t-shirt into off shoulder top
This is one of the super simple DIY t shirt and this will literally take you to under five-minute to complete.
What you’ll need:
- Old t-shirt
Take your old t-shirt and lay it on a flat surface. 1st thing to do is cut off your collar. If you are a beginner you can practice this on another old t-shirt that you really don’t care. But this is super easy ladies! even if you are a beginner I’m quite sure you can succeed in 1st try.
Mark directly underneath the stitching of the collar. but for the other side, you are going to cut a little bit wider than the first one. Because we want this to be an off shoulder t-shirt. You can select either side. Now cut the mark you just drew. After done with cutting stretch the fabric of the collar so that it looks more of a clean look.
After that, we are going to focus on the sleeves of the t-shirt. Cut about one inch from both sleeves and do the same stretch procedure for sleeves.
The third step is optional but you can try if your t-shirt too long or you need an off shoulder crop top. Cu the bottom part whatever length you want it to be but be careful unless you don’t want to ruin your t-shirt. What I suggest is 1st cut small part, check it and wear it if it’s not fit you can cut again. okay, ladies. we are done. Wear your off shoulder t-shirt with high waist denim jeans or shorts and of course you can try your DIY Bralette with this off the shoulder top. Try this DIY and let me know how you succeed with this.
Cut up DIY t shirt
This is a super cute DIY t shirt to try at home. But you have to careful with all the cutting because you can’t go back once you are cut off the t-shirt.
what you’ll need
- a plain color t-shirt
- ribbon or chalk
1st choose a t-shirt. I recommend you a plain color t-shirt. Lay your t-shirt on a flat surface and mark the length you want to cut. Make sure line is perfectly straight if not you can’t get this look. what I recommend is select the length you Want to cut and add a ribbon on the line using pins. If not you can just use chalk that can remove from 1st wash.
Now mark the lines from neckline to sleeves where you are going to cut. You can make them thinner but don’t make too thinner if you don’t want to rip lines apart. Half of the inch would be perfect. Also don’t cut too far from sleeves. Now cut the line you just drew.
once you are finished with cutting stretch all the cutoff strips.
The most important thing to remember when t-shirt cutting ideas there is no rule. You can’t go wrong with DIY t shirt. All you have to do is just grab your scissors and t-shirt and just simply cut off and remove the unnecessary parts. Don’t panic when cutting, after all, it just an old t-shirt. You have nothing to lose from an old t-shirt anyway. Never stop DIYing when you are failed because sometimes your failed DIY t shirt will be the cutest and different one.
