DIY T-shirt makeover

At times these plain t-shirts are little boring compared to printed ones.So, I thought a little makeover to the plain t-shirt make them look great and new. Let us see how to do it.

Materials used:
Plain t-shirt
Rhinestones nail head studs
Ribbon(any colour of your choice)
Fabric Scissors

Before starting the steps ,here is how the plain t-shirt looks,

Step 1: Trim the hem and make a slit in the center.Mark a slanting line from the center to the side seams of the t-shirt and cut as shown below.

Step 2: Double knot it .Now you have a cropped bottom of the t-shirt.Fold the shirt into half and shape the back hem.If you don't wanted it to be long you can trim to the size of the front .

Step 3:Repeat the same steps for sleeves.Trim the hem ,mark the center ,cut a center line and make slanting cut each side and tie a double knot.

Step 4: Add the Rhinestone nail heads studs around the neck area in the desire pattern you wish .Insert the nail heads and press it with scissors to keep in it place.

I also added a star in the right corner of the bottom to add more bling to the shirt.

Step 5:Thread your needle with ribbon and just simply go around the collar binding .Start by securing the end with double knot , insert the needle from the wrong side to the right side and then again insert it in the wrong side and come to the right side.Repeat this step to attain the design shown below.

Secure the end in the shoulder hem , so that it won't be shown out.

Voila!!!Now your old boring plain t-shirt got some blings!!! What do you think??Have you ever done any makeovers like this ??Feel free to share it in the comments below.If you have any doubts or clarification, don't hesitate to write to, I am always happy to hear from you.
