DIY: T-Shirt Fringe

posted on: Monday, April 30, 2012

Hi there to everyone, and I'm sorry for the 2 week delay in any post at all!! I have been swamped by school and work so I'm surprised I'm still alive to tell the tale. Since I last posted I have officially become the intern for the Anthropologie store in Charlotte, NC where I will spend the summer working with the Visual Merchandiser of the store creating Anthropologie's famous store fronts. I absolutely cannot wait for this fabulous opportunity! I will keep you posted of how that journey goes...

As for school I am officially done with classes! To celebrate I have posted up on the couch with Mary and Colleen (my roommates) to an afternoon of watching Across the Universe :) However happy I am right now I still have finals this week to finally conclude this semester :/ Wish me luck ladies and gents...

But today I bring to you probably the easiest DIY possible! This weekend was the famous Twilight Bike Race in Athens and as a kick-off Mary and I ran the Twilight 5k, as per usual we got a free t-shirt! So I decided to add a bit of flare to mine. Fringe is extremely popular this summer along with all thing boho and hippie chic, so if you want to add a touch of fun to a basic tee here are the steps:

First you will need to lay your shirt flat across the floor or table. Measure about 3 inches with a ruler and start cutting 3 inch strips around the shirt ::

Second, once you have cut strips all across the tee, pull the strips of fabric in order to stretch them out for the next step ::

Third, after all strips have been stretched gather a pair of strips and tie together ::

Once you have 2 sets of strips tied take the end of one of each of the separate strips and tie them together::

Next to give it a neater appearance you will want to cut off the ends of the knot ::

Repeat steps until the entire bottom of shirt has been tied ::

And Finally: Wear it and have fun with it!!

One of the greatest things about Spring in Athens is the fabulous greenery! I felt very European today wearing some of my Easter weekend finds. Daniel's mom gave me the chunky red necklace, and my shoes were a find from the SCAD International Festival this past weekend on Broughton in downtown Savannah. Feeling like red has been my color so far this year. Make sure that when pairing different patterns (like my shoes and scarf) that the colors compliment, don't want to look like a hot mess trying out a new trend!!

As a student, one always looks forward to a weekend at home in the midst of finals. This week my goal is to remind you all to rejoice for this Easter Holiday in your pastels and embrace the spring that is gracing us with it's blooms. God has blessed me with such a wonderful group of friends, a loving and supportive family, and a dashing boyfriend :) What more could a girl ask for?? I'm looking forward this weekend at home before my finals really start smothering me, but on the horizon lies a summer full of relaxing...ahhh bliss!

Today started perfectly and is still going perfectly....who ever thought black was 
only a color for mourning?? I like to think of it more as a blank slate, or
even feel like I can belt it out like Adele when I wear it.
Felt more like Johnny Cash today :)
Get rhythm everybody
