Let’s be honest. We all have stuff in our closet that we never use and never will. And one of the many such things stuffed in our wardrobes is a basic t-shirt. T-shirts are basic separates in any closet. But we do have some particular t-shirts stashed away somewhere that are either too big, or too fitted, or just simply too boring for us.
When this pile of non functional t-shirts, sitting at the back of your closet, stare at you, grab a pair of scissors and give it a touch of your creativity. A little cutting and sowing will transform your boring t-shirt into something new and unique!
Why should you cut your t-shirt?
- Saves money!! Do you need a better reason??
- You get to wear something different from your friends, something that no one else on this planet owns!
- You get to channel your creative juices and you get a new piece of garment at the same time.
- The t-shirt you create is YOUR PERSONAL style statement!
Ok so now that we are convinced to explore our creativity, lets look for some inspiration. There is a lot that you can do with a humble a t-shirt and transform it into something completely different. Look at these videos and choose whatever suits you:
