Striped-Strapless No-Sew T-shirt, DIY


I Have been trying to come up with different no sew t shirts in different styles, and while I was experimenting on a No sew skirt out of a tee shirt this weekend, 
I came up with this cute no sew strapless shirt. 
I used Tulip Neon Fabric Spays to help me create a beautiful stripped pattern. 
You could wear this with your favorite jeans, shorts or even use it  as a beach cover up. 
The best part is there is no sewing involved.

Things you need.
  1. T-Shirt *I used a XL mens Tee
  2. Scissors
  3. Tape
  4. Tulip Fabric Spray Paint
  5. Garbage bag
  •  Fold your shirt in half and use your tape to tape across your shirt
  •   Cut right above the tape,*the tape helps me cut a straight line.
  •  Cut open where the sleeves are at the seams
  •  Place a garbage bag in between your shirt so the paint does not seep through.
  •  Tape off the shirt. 
  • I did smaller stripes at the top and gradually made them bigger at the bottom.
  • Now figure out the colors you want to use. I used Yellow, Orange and Pink.
  •  Spray the shirt
  • Let dry for 4-6 hours
  •  Remove the tape
  •  Tie the top set of ties
  • Tie  the second set of ties.

Your shirt will have a U shaped  draped opening in the back.
 You can always stitch up the u shape if you would like.

Now you have a strapless shirt for summer.
I hope you have a wonderful Monday.

Off The Shoulder Tee, DIY

I have seen off the shoulder tees everywhere this spring.
 I really want to attempt to make one out some very pretty,
 floral material but first I had to make one out of,what else, a T-shirt.
This one is pretty easy because there is just a little hand stitching involved.

Gathered Back, Tied Tee; DIY.

 Changing a Plain Tee into something different is one of my favorite things to do.
I think why I love experimenting so much with them is because they are  accessible, inexpensive and can be transformed into a multitude of different designs. 
When I was a young mother and strapped for cash I would think about all of the ways I could have something cute to wear, so I started taking T-shirts and changing them into other things. Fast forward 20 years and here I am still changing them into different things. Maybe this was my destiny who knows. All I know is that I loved doing it then and I still love it.  
What is the saying I am always reading? Do what you love, Love what you do.

 You could also take this shirt to the next level
 and design something on the front like a big heart or a pair of lips. 
I think I will save that  for another project.
Thank you all for your wonderful support and love. 
I do this only for all of you.

Side Bow Sweatshirt DIY

 I saw this amazing sweater on Pinterest about a year ago and I have always wanted to re-create it. I finally decided to make one using  a hot pink sweatshirt that only cost me $5.00.


I love re-creating things.

Peakaboo Shamrock Tee.

You have 17 days until St Patrick's Day
Make this cute little tee to show your green.

 About 3 years ago I made a off the shoulder Heart  Peekaboo shirt for Valentine's Day
I thought using this same idea I could make a Shamrock shirt.
I added a few  Tulip Crystals to the Shamrock Shirt  to give it that extra sparkle.
If you follow me at all you know that I am continuously trying
 to reinvent the plain old tee shirt.
