So get your t shirts ( not just plain ones, just about any t-shirt you want to revamp) while we show you how to make your very own braided neck tee shirt, and then click lots of pictures with your guy because you’ll be looking really cute wearing your “new top”..!! Here we go!
Coordinating Thread and Needle
Here are your Detailed Steps
Step I : Lay out your old tee flat on the surface
Step II : Start by marking the slits you have to cut. You can go freehand here too, but if you’re doing it for the first time, it would be a good idea to mark them with a chalk. Its not a science experiment, so don’t worry too much about being accurate.
Step III : We have marked approximately 2-inch slits placed a little under an inch apart. The length of the slits and the distance between them will change the thickness of the “braid”. Cut the first slit half the length of the others, because all the pulling will enlarge it a bit.
Step IV: Once all the slits are cut, we begin the braiding. It’s really simple, and if you think you have gone wrong, just begin again. To braid, take the strip # 2 and push it under strip #1. Pull the loop that is formed in the direction of the slits and push strip # 3 inside the loop, and so on.
Step V : Braid all the loops and fasten the final loop to the t-shirt with a thread. If you find a little hole near the first loop, stitch it up a little.
Step VI : Don’t worry if it looks bunched up, because it is a part of the look. The top will fit you perfectly!
So go ahead, bring out your magic wand and transform plain tees by braiding them. Once you get the technique, you can braid the sleeves too! Have fun running scissors over your tees. And till then, keep it chic!
