DIY Shredded T

September 5, 2011

You can create this rope-like effect by simply pulling loose threads on a T shirt.
This DIY isn’t terribly difficult, but it is time consuming. It took me about 40 minutes to do each sleeve. Luckily, this doesn’t require too much attention and can be done while watching Netflix =)

Supplies:

[Cut off the hem at the bottom of the sleeves]
[Start picking at the horizontal threads with your fingers. Getting it started is the hardest part. Once it’s done it is easy to shred the fabric. I shredded down the middle and sides of each sleeve. Check out the video below to see the shredding in action]
 
[Stretch the fabric a little as you work.  Don’t pull the threads too hard or otherwise they will break]
[These next few steps are optional. My t shirt was really long so I cut off the bottom and gave it a asymmetrical hem]
[Then I cut off the neckband to create a wide scoop neck]
[I took some of the excess fabric left over from the bottom hem and I made a new neckband with it]
[Happy shredding!]
