Tee-Shirt Shrug, DIY

Need a little something for your shoulders when the nights get a little cooler?
 Make a shrug from the bottom half of a tee shirt.

Things you need.
  1. Extra Large Hanes Tee- shirt
  2. Scissors
  3. Pins
  4. Studs
  5. Pliers * not shown
  6. Sketch
  7. Sewing Machine *not shown
  8. Ruler* not shown
  9. Chalk *not shown
 Fold your shirt in half
Measure 6 inches down from the arm pit.

Draw a straight line with chalk

 Cut on the line, now you have a tube.
Save the top half for another DIY:)

 Turn inside out pin with your straight pins and sew a straight line across the top to close the tube.
Use the  appropriate color thread.
 I used a lighter thread so you could see better.
 ~This is the only sewing you have to do.~

Cut up each side, almost to the top.  
Stop about one inch from the end.

Turn right side out and over lap the corners where you just cut.

 I placed 3 studs there to hold it together.

On the back seam I placed studs all the way across,
 spacing them about 3 inches apart.

 Just for something a little extra

Now you have an easy, inexpensive solution to cold shoulders.
