DIY: recycling two shirts

As I mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to start doing some DIY projects with clothes that are too small but in a bad condition to give them away. I found two shirts of Dan that both have been damaged on the sleeves so I thought I’ll do something with them. Because I have no sewing skills, I started with something very basic: just cutting the sleeves and wearing them differently. I filmed everything as I think it gives you a better idea of how easy it is. The movie is quite explanatory, but feel free to ask me anything is you need more information. Thank you and enjoy!

Dupa cum spuneam in postarea anterioara, aveam de gand sa incep mici proiecte DIY (do it yourself) folosind haine pe care nu le mai purtam si care ori s-au rupt undeva, ori au o pata..deci nu pot fi refolosite. Asa am gasit doua camasi mai vechi de ale lui Dan si am zis sa incep cu un proiect simplu: fara cusut si minuni, doar o foarfeca. Am ales sa filmez totul ca sa va arat cat de simplu e. Nu ezitati sa-mi scrieti daca aveti nevoie de mai multe informatii. Va pup si vizionare placuta! ❤

Tip Thursday: Recycling old Tshirts

DIY backless top pink summer We all have some Tshirts and tops that we’re kind of bored of them. And sometimes we can easily ‘update’ them by adding something new. That’s what I did with a plain Tshirt yesterday: I cut the back of it and added some fine fabric. Because I didn’t have something like a cordon (or something similar), I cut a small piece from my scarf. After that, I took one pen and started to make small marks on the back of the Tshirt: I planned to cut out from the Tshirt approximately 7 cm (2.8 inches). I also marked the holes I was going to cut for the scarf. After I cut everything, I put the scarf like shoe laces and that was all! I’ve took photos to show you the progress, if you have more questions, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment! But I may say it’s a very easy project.

Cu totii avem tricouri pe care nu le mai purtam ca deja ne-am cam plictisit de ele… cea mai buna solutie e sa le dam altora. Dar uneori imi place sa le si folosesc pentru mici proiecte. Cele mai multe le tai si le folosesc la sport, dar de data asta am ales sa fac ceva dragut: Am luat un tricou pe care l-am taiat in spate. In primul rand am facut mici semne cu o carioca, astfel incat sa tai cat decat simetric. Am planuit sa tai o bucata lata de aproximativ 7 cm. Apoi am facut semne mici pe unde ar trebui sa intre panglica. Aveam in minte sa pun o panglica la spate, ca sireturile la papuci. Pentru ca nu am avut nicio panglica, am taiat o bucatica dintr-o esarfa. Dupa ce am taiat tot, am pus mini esarfa prin gauri si gata! Mi-a luat cam 10 minute totul si a fost foarte usor. Mai jos am pus poze cu pasii pe care i-am facut. Daca aveti intrebari, nu ezitati sa-mi scrieti un comentariu. Voi ce faceti cu tricourile de care v-ati plictisit?DIY backless top pink summer
