I have been building up my DIY blog following over the last few days. One of my new favorites is Glitter and Glue. Kristen’s blog is youg and fun and the projects are easy. Today I wanted to share her tutorial for
her DIY Chanel Inspired Transparent Bag. I think it’s really cute and as soon as I get some free time I will trying it. Please check out this tutorial and the many others she has.
I got this idea from Blogilates. Check out her post here.
– Old t-shirt
– Pair of scissors
TIME: 15 min
1. Cut away the crew neck the sleeves and the bottom. For the sleeves, you will want to start at the shoulder (you decide how thick you want the strap to be) and cut straight into the chest area. Then curve. If you curve the whole way, it’s gonna look weird on you.
2. Clean up the edges. Decide how low you want the neckline to be.
3. Turn the shirt to the back and make a narrower racerback. Then cut a deep V.
4. Take the bottom edge of the shirt that you cut off and cut the seams off so that you’re just left with fabric. Stretch it out as much as possible.
5. About 2″ from the bottom of the V tie a know with one edge of the noodle.
Wind it round ‘n round, then double knot it at the other end too. Cut off loose ends.
6. To make this a hi-low top, lay your shirt sideways and flat. Then starting at about 4-5″ from the front center of the shirt start diagonally cutting down til you reach the back. You’ll want to cut straight for a bit at the front center then start creating the diagonal or else you’re gonna get a weird arrow shape with you open up.
Here is the final product:
