Fringing a shirt is an easy and fun way to produce a totally new look from shirts you already have in your wardrobe. There are several ways to decorate a fringed shirt, and you can experiment with different decoration methods to create a unique look all your own. To fringe a T-shirt, put the shirt on and stand in front of the mirror, then use chalk to mark where you want the fringe to start. Take the shirt off and lay it flat, then use a ruler on both sides of the shirt to make sure the chalk line is even. Cut off the bottom hem of the shirt, then cut along your vertical lines to create the fringe.
When you tuck the shirt in, at the very front the two sides of the shirt tails separate and make for a gap in the shirt right below your belly button. The lack of alignment can make the shirt look sloppy. If the last button on the shirt is above the belt, you need an extra button at the bottom of the shirt. Increasing the shirt length to the next threshold point will cause the shirt to be made with an additional button at the bottom of the shirt tail. With Proper Cloth, the number of buttons on the front of a shirt is a function of the shirt length as well as the top button placement.
You take a shirt out of your closet and you notice that it has a few of those teeny tiny holes. Sound familiar? You might think it was a hungry moth or perhaps it just the sharp edge of your belt buckle, but the culprit is probably neither. So, who or what is the culprit then?
The answer is all of the above, but today we're talking about yarn. I bet you never looked at one of your beaten-up T-shirts and thought, I could make yarn out of that! But T-shirt yarn is actually a great raw material for all kinds of projects, from coasters to rugs.
