DIY: Tank

Today's DIY will be how to turn an old t-shirt into a cute new tank top! It's very simple, and you will love the results. I found this idea on Pinterest.  For your t-shirt, you should use one a couple of sizes too big since you will be cutting a lot of it off. I just used one of my dad's old shirts.

You will need:
- Big old t-shirt
- Scissors (Fabric Scissors work better, but you will probably be fine with regular scissors)


Step One- Cut off the crew neck, sleeves, and bottom. Look at the picture for guidance.

Step Two- Decide how low you want your neckline to be and clean up the edges.

Step Three- Turn the shirt to the back. Make a deeper racerback, and then cut a pretty deep V.

Step Four- Take the bottom edge of the shirt that you cut off. Cut off the seams so that it will be only fabric. This should leave you with a long string. 

Step Five- With one of the ends of the string, tie a a couple of inches from the top of the V.

Step Six- Wind the string around and around.  Double knot it at the other end and cut off any loose ends.

Step Seven- To make the hem high- lowish, lay your shirt sideways and flat. Then, starting at about 4-5 inches from the front center of the shirt, start diagonally cutting down until 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 going to get a weird arrow shape.

Step Eight- Enjoy your new shirt!:)
