Tutorial: T-shirt Pirate Shirt

Shiver me timbers!! Thought I'd continue the Pirate theme from yesterday with this nifty t-shirt transformation. The inspiration for this came a few weeks ago when Jasper was invited to a Pirate themed birthday party. The birthday boy's mom is a friend and so I knew she'd made a vest and pirate pants for all the kids who would be attending. Her request was that the kids would wear a white shirt to the party to complete the look. So 45 minutes before the party's start time I was at Target purchasing a white t-shirt. I decided to alter it a bit when I got home to make it a bit more "pirate-y". It was easy and quick- which was good because by the time I got home it was only 20 min. til the party started. :)

Jasper loved the shirt and he did look pretty cute in his finished outfit so I thought I'd share the how-to with you! Aaaargh!!

T-shirt Pirate Shirt

Tools and Materials:
White T-shirt
Old brown t-shirt
ItalicScissors
Crop-a-dile

Directions:
1. Using a scissors, cut a jagged edge along the bottom of the shirt. I didn't care if it looked perfect (in fact it looks better the messier it is) so I cut through both layers at once.





2. Then cut the sleeves in the same jagged pattern. I cut triangles but you could probably get a good look by just cutting strips into the shirt as well.






3. Cut off the t-shirt's collar and then in the front center of the shirt cut a "V" approx. 4-6" long.




4. Using a Crop-a-dile, punch holes in the t-shirt symmetrically and slightly spaced apart along each side of the "V" (as pictured).



5. Cut a 12-14" strip about 1/2" width from an old brown t-shirt (it will curl slightly). Thread through hole in a criss-cross pattern.



6. The finished shirt! Jasper's ended up being a bit big for him through the shoulders so I folded the shoulder fabric over and stitched it in place with embroidery floss.

Cute!
