No Sew Shirt Upcycle

MY SEWING MACHINE IS BROKEN!!! I am very very very sad..................... So I am trying to come up with projects where my sewing machine is not needed, so I did another no sew shirt refashion. Here it is!
Here is my plain shirt. It is old and has stretched out a lot over time which makes it perfect for this project!

Next I cut up the side halfway up the shirt, cut to make fringe, then tied the two pieces of fringe together! (just like the shirts we all use to do in high school, but more fashionable!)

Finished Shirt!


I like it!

  8. Great idea! When I was pregnant (some time ago) one of my maternity shirts was great. I loved it! This would have been a great way to alter it and continue wearing it.

  11. I did this and it turned out super cute. Although I don't know how to make it so that there is no hole at the top. Could you please email me some tips as to how to close that gap? Thanks so much!
