5 Ways To Transform Your Casual T-Shirts

Tired of your old boring shirts? 

Your old T-shirts may be the most comfortable item of clothing you own, but you probably think they’re best reserved for nap time only. However, instead of throwing away your shirts after growing tired of them or giving them away to charity, try to save your money by recycling them. You don’t have to be a professional seamstress or sew at all for the matter, to be able to jazz up your shirts into fashionable pieces of clothing! You’d be surprised at the end results, and what you are able to create with just a pair of scissors. Here are a few ways in which you can transform your T-shirts, using supplies that can easily be found at your homes in G Residence, Seni Mont Kiara and Pantai Hillpark

Ribbons 

For a cute and fun look, simply cut the back of your shirt, and attach a bow, which can be tied up. Choose a bright coloured or interested patterned ribbon, in order to make an otherwise simple T-shirt stand out. Other ways you can use ribbons in your shirts include cutting slits around the neck of your shirt, and slide a ribbon through it, which you can bring to the front and tie as a tie. You can also choose a long button down shirt, and tie a bow around it to turn it into a summer dress! You can purchase such bows from any crafts store or order them online, and have them delivered to your apartments at Seni Mont Kiara for sale, and Pantai Hillpark sale

Geometrical Cuts

Geometrical designs are all the rage right now, and most people don’t realize how easy it is to incorporate these into your shirts using just a pair of scissors. Simply draw out your design on a piece of paper, creating a stencil, then use a fabric chalk to recreate the design onto your shirt and cut it out. You can make geometrical cuts nearly everywhere; such as your sleeves, and around the necklines for a clean yet edgier upgrade from your simple Tees. 

Knots 

Knots are the easiest way to transform your T-shirts as they require minimal effort on your part and thus you do need many steps to get your desired look. You can cut a slit around your sleeves, and tie it from the bottom, you can cut your shirt from the back, and tie a bow, or you can even simply just tie a knot at the front for a more classic touch. Another interesting idea is to cut a peekaboo shoulder, and then tie a bow around it. 

Slashes 

Slashes can be very versatile, and done in many different ways but the end result is always interesting and unique. Also it’s one of the easiest designs to create as even if you make a mistake, it won’t easily be noticable. Moreover, you do not need to worry about copying a design exactly as it is, and in fact can make random cuts wherever you feel like. You can truly experiment with slashes, thus ensuring that your resulting T-shirts will truly be one of a kind. 

Paint 

Whip out those fabric paint and brushes and give those scissors a rest, because painting is the most fun way to transform your T-shirts. There are also many different techniques to fabric painting, such as free hand, stencils and spray painting. The technique you use depends upon what kind of design you want to create. Moreover, you should use the right kind of brushes, as brushes made of natural hair will be too soft to paint over your T-shirts.

For this reason, opt for fabric brushes as these tend to be stiffer and thus help you create more precise and sharp designs, especially if you want to paint a lot of details. These can be easily purchased from any arts and crafts store such as Mr. DIY, near areas like G Residence Kuchai Lama, property for sale Seni Mont Kiara, and buy Pantai Hillpark for sale

Do not forget to place cardboard inside your shirt before you begin painting, in order to ensure that the paint does not get transferred to the other side. When you’re using a stencil, make sure to keep it steady and secure in order to avoid messing up your design. Once you are finished, make sure the paint is completely dry, and then set it using a clothing iron to make sure your design does not easily fade once you wash it. If you are interested in our products, you can check out our Customer Service to ensure you get the best experience shopping at our site.
