Fancy Pant Crafty Blogger I am NOT But I DID Manage To Make A Cool Shirt!

Do ya’ll know what happens when I get bored at work?
I start to think. 
Mind you that is not always a good thing.
This time it was! 
What did I think about this time?
How the hell did everyone at The Color Run make those neat t-shirt to tank top shirts?
So what did I do?
The only logical thing to do!
Consult the one the only PINTEREST
What did I find?
This awesome pin!
What did I do?
Decided that I needed to get crafty at work.
Luckily I had on not only a t-shirt but also a tank top and a hoodie.
It gets cold at work.
Layers people layers!
I took off my t-shirt and got to work.

Take off your shirt and lay it out flat on your desk if you are like me and do random stuff at work.

After you locate a pair of scissors -you would think they would be in abundance in an office right? Not so much- cut off the sleeves.

Then hack off the neck rim-y thingy.

Turn the shirt and cut off the bottom seam and a little more.
I took an extra like 1/2-1 inch off.
Honestly I just eyeballed it.

Flip that bad boy over and cut a deep back neck.

Photobucket

Turn it back over and cut a deeper front neck.
Also if ya want skinnier straps which I will do next time go on and cut your straps skinnier.

Take a step back realize that the 2 monitors that SHOULD be on at work are in sleep mode!
See those two pink arrows pointing to my work monitors.
Yeah they were supposed to be on.
OOPS! 

Photobucket

Take the bottom piece that you cut off and snip it so its a long piece and stretch it out.
Wrap it around the straps in the back and tie it off.
Put on your new tank top and prance around the office like a goon with a big cheesy grin on your face.

Your welcome!

Now if ya ask me if I would do anything different I would say yes!
See I wear a size medium t-shirt normally.
Well see that picture above?
See how my boobs look like they wanna blow it out?
Thats not normal.
I can promise you my boobs are not big.
Actually quite opposite they are extremely small.
So I would suggest using a shirt a size or 2 larger than what you normally wear.
For Saturdays Color Run I plan to steal Lobsters XL t-shirt and make another one.
Just sayin’! 
Now go make yourself a fancy schmancy tank top from a t-shirt!

    Angela, love that you have hot pink shorts for color run.

    I will attempt to do this maybe tonight, I am afraid of the boobage issue since mine are freaking big and are always in the way. This should be interesting. LOL. wish me luck.
