So Hot And Yet So Cool! - DIY Tshirt Inspiration

Summer is upon us so now is the perfect time to make some DIY t-shirts!  I am so excited to finally do this, you have no idea.  The options are endless too, from fabric dyes, paints, rhinestones and embroidery to fringing, shredding and creative sewing, there is no end to the awesomeness one can create. I am chompin at the bit to see what I come up with.  

    Today I came across this beauty from styleitchic and I just knew I had to try some version of this.  This shirt is smokin hot and it is so chic, trendy and modern!  I love how you can create these lovely pieces from damaged and old tees that you ordinarily would just discard.  How is that for recycling! 

    I personally love using the bigger non fitted tee's like the ones in the top pictures since they have more fabric to manipulate.  Plus, they look so effortless and chic when paired with something fitted at the bottom.

     Well am off to raid my husband's closet, he is a tennis instructor and has tons of tees so it's a win win for me! Ha ha, not so much for him but he doesn't mind.

     I hope that this post inspires you to try one of these DIY shirts, it's such a great way to resurrect your old tees.

    When I was in college, I used to cut up different t-shirts and make them into these cool and funky designs. I loved doing it. Too bad I don't have enough time to do it anymore....
