This week I will show you how to transform a simple t-shirt into a fashionable piece! T-shirt weaving (& braiding) is a great way to reconstruct your old and boring t-shirts. So let's see how is done.
What you need is:
Lay your t-shirt out on a flat surface and use scissors to cut the sleeves.

With a ruler and a soap marker start drawing vertical lines at the back of the t-shirt. I draw 13 lines. You can do as many as you like. Then use scissors to open a small hole and start cutting the strips.
When you finish cutting the strips, the back should look like this. Once the strips are all cut, stretch them so they curl up and narrow.
It is time to start weaving the back of our t-shirt! Once all strips are curled, start with two strips and pull the second one under the first and back over. In this way you are creating a chain. Go on with the rest of the strips.

We repeat the same process for the front part.
