DIY Weaving T-Shirt

Hi Friends!
It's Friday and I'm feeling great. I've been washing and cleaning the house like a mad woman, that's what you get when you leave for 3 weeks. There are dust bunnies everywhere. Ugh

Let's throw some DIY fun into the mix. I have a closet full of T-shirts that I plan on cutting up. A few were too cute to pass up, some I  outgrew. Today we are addressing this problem. My favorite shirt has a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the front of it. I brought it at a skate shop that was going out of sale. The shirt does nothing for my figure, but we can change that with a few simple, or not so simple, cuts. 

I found this tutorial at and I had to try.
