No Sew T-Shirt Redesign Tutorial from Bookmans Grant
Bookmans Grant begins free weekly classes for the community on a wide range of topics including health and wellness, arts and crafts, and life skills. The aim of these classes is to make information available to those who want it and to bring together people with similar interests. This week we try our hand at T-Shirt reconstruction. Here’s a peek at one of the techniques we will learn.
T-shirt a little larger than you would normally want it.
Grab your T-shirt. We used the Bookmans sugar skull logo T-shirt, which you can find at all of our locations.
Draw a line just inside the seams of the sleeve and in a V shape inside the collar.
Cut along those lines. Make sure the seams on the front and back are aligned because you are cutting through two layers of fabric on the sleeves.
Flip the shirt over and draw two lines down the back that stop where the new sleeves end.
Cut out the area with the Xes and cut along the dotted line.
Flip the shirt back over and cut off the bottom of the shirt if it looks too long.
Tie the straps you made in a knot.
Try your reconstructed shirt on and adjust the straps to your liking. Voilà!
These classes will always be free and open to the public. We hope you join us in this new venture and if you have an idea for a class or would like to teach a one please email email@example.com. Please visit our events calendar to get more information about the classes we offer.
