No Sew T-Shirt

A few weekends ago my dental company had a booth set up at a local event and I was to work it for a few hours. I can assure you that I was NOT cleaning teeth under a tent out on the open. My job was basically to attract new patients with our award winning personalities (and the free dental swag helped).
You can also imagine how excited I was that I did not have to attend this event wearing scrubs! I even got an awesome t-shirt to wear!!! it's just a t-shirt. BUT not for long...

I began by cutting off the bottom hem, sleeve hems, and collar.

(I used a t-shirt that I like the fit of to determine how long to make the strips).
I used my rotary cutter to cut strips 1/2 inch wide by about 1 inch long. (Same concept as a fleece tie blanket).
Then alternated flipping the strips over, this makes it easier to keep track of the ones that still need to be tied.

I tied the front and back strips together.

For the sleeves I cut a small slit just above the shoulder seam.
I used the scrap from the sleeve hem to tie the sleeves up.

I used the scrap from the bottom hem as a headband!

Now this shirt has some personality!
After I worked hard at the event the hubby and our dear friend, Kyle came out to take me for dinner!

After dinner we wound up at a local brewery for board games and beers! (Life: my favorite of all)


Happy Refashioning!!!

I like what you've done. There are a lot of events now where you acquire these freebie t-shirts and it's good to get some new ideas to make them more wearable after the event.

Very cute, and more feminine too. Nice job.
