14 August 2010


if you were born in the 80's you know you had one of these shirts...and you probably wanted to wear it everyday...and you spun around and around and shook your torso bc you thought it was so cool. well it was, it was so cool that i made one for summer 2010!
grey tee
then you will cut 1 inch (width) strips & cut as far up as you want but make sure its not above your boobies.
after you finish cutting front and back, pull strips from top to bottom and start beading. it helps to use a rat tail comb or wire to shove the shirt through the bead.
i decided to go with wooden beads from my grandmas collection, but you can use whatever your heart desires.
Ryder loved the beads. he would get really excited if a bead fell,look up with big eyes and say "i Get it!"
i do want to use these hearts on another shirt:) maybe white on white:)
use 1-3 beads on each strip but make sure you make knots to keep the beads from falling off.

i love this booger
is this D.I.Y. something you might try?
if you do, send us a pic or link back to us so we can check it out:)
have a great weekend friends!
