I realised today that since posting the first in a series of T-shirt makeover tutorials some months ago, I never actually got round to posting any more! Just to re-cap, these are a handful of tried-and-tested easy ways to make something new out of an old tee (or two). I also like to think up silly names for these tutorials, but that's because I'm way too chirpy and a little bit odd.
You will need:
A plain long-sleeved T-shirt (mine is from Marks & Spencer, or, to be more precise, pinched from my mum).
A pair of scissors
A T-shirt with a pretty design or logo on it (this could be a handy way to re-vamp unflattering band or slogan tees for example).
2. Cut out the picture/design you want on your T-shirt and glue it in place. Leave to dry.
3. Spread the sleeves out flat and cut horizontal lines down each sleeve, approximately one inch apart. Don't cut all the way through the sleeve, obviously.
Voila - done! Told you it was easy.
Goth gossip: As much as I hate to make a Rebecca Black reference, Sary posted this fab satire of the infamous Friday by none other than Amanda Palmer on her blog today... it's vaguely disturbing but makes me feel better about catching myself humming the tune earlier. (FYI, I don't hate Rebecca Black; loads of kids with varying levels of talent post their music videos on YouTube and I'm not sure what the big deal is. The lyrics make me laugh though.)
P.S. On an unrelated but Halloweeny note, this is what I had for dinner last night:
