DIY $2 T Shirt Tank

I keep seeing all these cute T shirt tanks online. Pinterest is full of these DIY tutorials on how to cut up a T shirt and make it into an awesome tank top. What I want to know is where all these women are getting awesome T shirts to turn into tank tops. I only have those ugly free ones you get from credit card companies and banks. I’m not going to cut up one of my good T shirts for a tank top. I might as well buy a tank top than ruin one of my good shirts.

Whelp, I was in luck. Popped into TJ Maxx during a lunch break and they were having a sale. Like a HUGE sale where they had T shirts for $2, shoes for $5, and dresses for $5. I was like, what the heck? Are they just giving it all away? So I bought a T shirt, one of those really soft ones.

So I tried to follow these instructions I found on Pinterest, but well, you’ll see I kinda altered it a bit.

First, I cut off the arms. Then cut the seam out of the shoulders so they were separated. The next part was a bit difficult, I twisted the front once (could have done twice) and sewed the seam back up. I ended up with a rugged, twisted shoulder tank, perfect as an over shirt for the summer.

Like I’ve said before, I’m not a big crafty girl, but it’s super comfy and I’m gonna wear this, even if just around the house to watch TV.
