DIY: the t-shirt skirt

1: get invited to the culdesac craft night. yay for crafty neighbors.
2: search pinterest for craft to make at said night.
3: even call little sister for ideas.
4: realize that your sewing machine is now fixed. (for free. thank goodness for smart friends.)
5: remember that you went to a nearby thrift store, like the DI in provo.
6: also recall that you bought two different colored t-shirts.
7: wash them. or not. your choice.
8: wander on over to craft night.
9: cut down one side of the shirt to open it up.
10: cut into 4 inch strips.
11: sew together white and black strips.
12: make sure the bottom of the skirt is the hemmed portion of the t-shirt
13: sew sides together to fit your body. make sure it’s lined up. or maybe off slightly. either way.
14: add elastic that justina so graciously gives you.
15: model for your neighbors during craft night.
16: wear around the house while sporting the greasy hair look.
17: add extra number to the list when you post it so it doesn’t end on an even number. πŸ™‚
