DIY: Customize Your Tee (Easy. No Really.)

by - July 20, 2013

It's super duper easy with prodigious effect.

- T-shirt
- Wool
- Scissors
- Needle
- Two hands
- Some good functioning brains

Before I've started, I've cutted the neck-line/sleeves/underside of the t-shirt for a more “punky” feel. This is of course optional. Well everything is. Infact you can leave all this work behind and go rock your t-shirt as it is, but this is more time consuming.

First you cut off loads of strings from the wool. Make them sort of even, but don't stand next to it with a measuring tape. 

After you've cut the pieces (like loads and loads of it), you can grab yourself a needle and try to push the sucker through the hole. When succeeded you can push the needle through the t-shirt. The t-shirt is facing upwards with the good side. Just take a little bit of fabric and push it through, so that it comes out not far from the entering. Make a knot. Repeat this like 1000 times untill you've reached the desired result.

I've attached the strings in a straight line on the t-shirt, making the rows overlap a bit on the downside/upside. I've used various kinds of wool in different shades of grey (50 Shades of Grey I will call it). So be aware you need to part it, but don't make it look like you've been using maths to recreate a “random” composition. Because you won't fool anybody.

It's easy. You only need to be able to put a thread through a needle, a needle through some fabric and then make a knot!

You know you've done a good job when your tee ends up looking like it just threw up... or grew a beard.
