DIY: Cut Out Denim

Supplies: denim shirt, bandanna, any type of fabric for back.


The denim shirt is on trend and this is a great way to separate yours from the rest. Think laces, stripes, tribal prints, sequins...so much fabric to choose from. In the spirit of the Olympics, which I watch every 4 years, I couldn't resist the stars and stripes bandanna for my back. 


Cut back of denim out. Use the cut denim as the pattern for new back. Pin it in place with denim seams on top.


Top stitch all the way around...seams, arms and collar...now onto the Olympics.
