How to Upcycle a Tee: Web Style

For my birthday one year, me and my husband went to a video game midnight release party for the Xbox One. I got a t-shirt as a door prize and guess what? The date, my birthday, was printed on the arm. I decided to make something special out of this tee. It’s an easy craft to upcycle a tee. Here’s how I did it.

How to upcycle a t-shirt: Web style

  1. Fold the t-shirt into thirds. Then, cut 1/2 inch slits along the folds.

2. Unfold the shirt. Here’s what it looked like after I unfolded the shirt:

3. Stretch the shirt to make the edges of the slits curl.

4. Fold the sleeves and cut them, too.

I think it turned out pretty good! I wore it to a classic car show soon after I made it. To keep things cool in the summer heat, I wore a tank top underneath, but it also looks cute over a plain long-sleeved tee in colder weather. This is a good trick to use if you have a tee that is too small because the webbing makes it a little bigger.
