So I got this pretty darn cool T-Shirt from my amazing brazilian friend Samira back in CT. I never wore it though due to it being kinda big on me. Now I had some time on my hands and I decided to reconstuct this T-Shirt to make it more custom and fitting. And if your’re interested in refashion one yourself I worte down a tutorial and took some pics so you can easily do it yourself as well!
So let’s get started. You’ll need:
- Old baggy T-Shirt
- Fabric Scissors
- Tailors Chalk
Draw a curve running one inch off the collar and cut it off using the fabric scissors.
Fold the back of the shirt in half. I used a folder to mark the stripes evenly.
Cut even strips about an inch wide from the top to the bottom. Gradually get wider towards the bottom. Pull the stripes individually to form string.
Use a pillow or two to stuff in the Shirt. This will make braiding easier. You could also use cardboard or a (if you have one and if you do I’m pretty jealous) mannequin. The top strand goes over the bottom and you pull the bottom strand through and continue like this with all the strings. You could also twist the strand before pulling the next one trough to create a different pattern. You can do this as often as you want to create a unique pattern. The last strand has to get cut in half and knotted on each side to secure the braids.
I would love to see how yours turn out. Leave a comment with a link to your results :)
I had the chance to attend a really cool Birthday Bash for two Rock n’ Roll Lovers who turned both 50 and are great friends.
It was alovely party with a ton of bikers. Those are always the nicest I must say from my experience. They all watch out for each other. Hard shell but a soft inside.
Today I got my last wisdom tooth removed. So finally that is done! As soon as I have recovered there’s going to be plenty more DIY Tutorials coming your way. I’m really excited about that :) Take care

So tmrw I’m getting my lower wisdom teeth out and I’m veryyyyy nervous! I already got the upper ones removed almost three years ago and that went fine. I was able to eat normally again the same night but the lower ones basically grow horizontal so yay me! Here’s my X-Ray. Even if you’re not a doctor you can tell that they shouldn’t look like that haha :D
