Easy Re-Fashion T-Shirt

I bought a fun green shirt at Old Navy
for $1.25 and wanted to spice it up a bit.
Try this little project for yourself...
First, get your t-shirt and fabric.
I always choose fabric that has hints of the same color in it.
Cut a strip of fabric (3.5"x 25")
Fold (right side to right side).
Then sew up 3 of the sides.
Use a chop stick to turn the strip right side out.
Then sew up the fourth side.

Next, begin folding and pinning the strip
along the collar, or V-Neckline.
Start at the shoulder and work your way down
to the length you want.
Fold it like you would when you make a paper fan
(kind of like an accordian).
Then sew in the center of your strip
with matching thread.
I used a double stitch to ensure it would stay.

All done!
The project took about 20 minutes and cost less than $2.
I personally love it!
You can make your strip any way you want.
You can creat a flower or zig-zag
or whatever design suits your fancy.

A great way to add some flair to a plain ol' T!
