Basket Weaving old tshirts

Supplies: old grey t-shirt scraps


I love a simple top with a twist. The strips were a bit time consuming because I sewed them together to create a more tailored look. I kept the front plain, but you can flip it to be worn either way...


 Make strips using similar jersey. I wanted a more tailored look so I cut the strips wide enough, folded them in half (right sides together) and flipped them with a loop turner (you can get this at any fabric/craft store). This is more difficult, but looks nicer. You can just cut strips without sewing them.

For an easier DIY you can cut the strips right from the back of the shirt. Start horizontally leaving the collar and bottom hem attached. Then weave the extra strips laterally, pinning as you go on the side seam.


Weaved them in and out and sew!


Once I got to the length I wanted, I made a larger strip to go all the way around.

  5. ohmagarsh!!! I love this so very much. And your ENTIRE blog for that matter :) You are so incredibly talented I can't handle it. (Did you go to school for this?) This looks very hard for my mediocre sewing skills (hey. I'm learning!) but I may just be crazy enough to try it.. If you have extra time, it would be so awesome if you made a video tutorial for this one. I would love you even more than I do!
    Thanks for sharing your talent with the rest of us, it gives me hope to someday be as good as you :)

    1. This is AMAZING! I do have some questions...I am getting ready to try this and I can't seem to figure out how the cutting works. Also I don't know if I need more than one shirt.By the way, thank you for such a great idea. I can't wait to try it out! :)

  7. I've been looking all over for this tute! I pinned it, but the pin only went to a pic and not the tute. Anyways, I finally gave up looking for the tute and made a hoodie sweatshirt and weaved the back. I will post about it soon and I'll be sure to link here. I love that you up-cycled yours. All of your diy's are amazing!

    1. She wrote that she used similar jersey fabric, but you can use just the regular shirt as well. It just won't look as nice.

  10. Wow, love this idea. It looks amazing! I have a question though. When you make your strips did you fold the fabric strips in half, sew your seam and then turn them inside out for a more finished look?Thnaks again for the great idea!

    1. Agreed! I'm using a clearance shirt I got at Delia's (for $6) to make this, but since I didn't get two shirts I am just going to use some pretty fabric so I can do the more tailored look. :) I'm going to post a tutorial on my blog with my version (though of course I'll include a link to here, because this was my inspiration).

  48. A recent survey report shows that most of the academic writing services which provide Assignment, Essay, Dissertation, Thesis or Study Help to the students are using Paraphrasing tools by which they re-write the same paper again and again, although with the use of these tools you can easily get passing marks, but if you really want to get HD grades in your Clinical Reasoning Cycle Assignment you have to hire an expert like myassignmenthelp.com tutors.
