Road Trip DIY. Weave Texture





What does this DIY gal do on a 14 hour road trip with no sewing machine...? Weave jersey strips...of course. I love this look to a basic t-shirt. It gives a bit of texture and originality and it's insanely easy. Check out the steps below and make your own. 

Supplies: 

  • Dolman from T-shirt (DIY here)
  • jersey strips



DIY:



  • Make a dolman tee using my tutorial
  • Use scrap jersey or another t-shirt and cut finger tip width strips about 12" in length. 
  • Cut little holes (about 1/8 of an inch and no more as the jersey stretches) evenly along the shirt bib.  Mine were about 1/4" apart. The rows were 1/4" apart as well. 
  • Knot one end of the strip through the interior and begin to weave in and out of the holes. Then knot again at the end. 
  • Secure the ends if you want with a sewing machine or thread and needle.

  7. Couldn't you finish by tying knots in the jersey on the inside? Or maybe that would bulk it up too much but it seems like it might work as a no-sew option.

  11. If your abilities are still at a newbie level, don't fret. For example, when you're able to ask questions help make simple statements based on memorized thought for the day sentences, understand conversation fragments and uncomplicated commands, then look for beginning readers.
