DIY Cut Out T-shirts

Every woman know how valuable it is to have a good supply of 100% polyester T-shirts in her closet. They are versatile, inexpensive and can be modified in lots of different ways to create unique looks. One popular fashion trend are cutout T-shirts, which feature all sorts of designs or strategically placed cuts to enhance the simple silhouette. If you want to try your hand at an easy cutout project, this one is perfect. We’ll create a heart shape that can look different depending on the color of undershirt you choose.

Supplies

Gather these up on a large working surface before you get started:

  • Oversize T-shirt in the color of your choice.
  • Small pair of scissors for detail work
  • Chalk in color that can easily be seen

Setup

OK, you are going to be doing a little bit of drawing here. Don’t be nervous! This is just elementary school-level artwork. Lay the T-shirt flat on your work surface. Using the chalk, draw a medium-size heart in the middle of the chest area. Make sure to leave enough room for the “rays” coming off the heart. Don’t worry if your heart is not completely centered or if it’s a little crooked. The design will look good no matter what.

Drawing

Now, using the heart outline as your baseline, draw rudimentary rays or flames coming off of it all the way around. The rays should be smaller around the top of the heart where they are closest to the collar and larger around the sides and bottom of the heart. Don’t go too big, though, or you will end up with cutouts that go all the way into your armpits!

Cut

It’s time to cut out the rays. Do not cut out the heart shape. Using your small scissors, slowly make your way around the heart, cutting out all the rays you drew. It’s all right if you don’t cut exactly on the chalk lines. Any lines left on the shirt will come out in the wash. Try to make your cuts as smooth as possible to avoid jagged edges that may be visible when you wear the shirt. The cut edges will curl a bit, especially after the shirt is washed, so that will help hide uneven cuts you may have made.

You’re Done!

Now you can wear this cute shirt with any color underneath. When you are ready, you can try other cutout designs. Here are some ideas:

  • Cut a double wing design out of the back of a T-shirt
  • Skulls cut out of the front or back of a shirt is a rock ‘n’ roll look
  • Snip the sides of the T-shirt from the arm hole down to create a corset look

Salary Comparison Between Male and Female Professional Athletes

I don’t have any favorite sports but I highly admire athletes who are very passionate in their field of sports.  They work very hard to achieve success in their careers.  The pride of performing very well is the first important thing.  Winning the competition is second.  “It’s not about winning or losing, it is how you play the game”, they say.  But if you take a chance getting an Adelphi Sports Management Online Masters Degree, you will understand how the athletes work and who they are compensated.

Look Stunning On Your Prom Night!

What a beautiful day today.  And the weather forecast is we will be having pleasant sunny days this weekend and next week.  Hooray!  After weeks of wintry weather, we are going to enjoy this Spring-like weather.  I love it!

And so you know, this kind of weather is perfect for outdoor pictorials for the Prom.  Yes, it’s the Prom season coming up again.  And we all know how busy the senior high school students are but this special occasion or event in their high school life is very important – the Prom night.  It takes a perfect weather, a magnificent venue, and a splendid prom attire to make the prom night super memorable.  To give an extra excitement to a prom night is to hold it in a cruise liner or a tall ship for the evening.  This is possible if you are near a lake or ocean.  But most of the time, this special event is held in a large ballroom of a reputable hotel.

Of course, the young ladies and gentlemen won’t be able to go without wearing their stunning formal attire.  And the girls are going to be excited shopping and fitting their prom dresses.  The very trendy and gorgeous prom dresses at jenjenhouse.com are just right in your budget, I think.  With so many selection of formal dresses, you will be able to find the one that will make you feel like a prom queen.  🙂

I super love this dress and it's color. :) I want this for myself.
