Altered Tshirts

I am working on something new to offer on my site. I love the look of altered tshirts and find this is a great way to breathe new life in to something old, as well as creating designs out of new tshirts. The sky is the limit.
I plan to organize a workshop for those who would like to learn how to do this and create items for themselves or for gifts. With the holidays coming up, this is a great way to keep your expense down and provide a nice gift to those on your Christmas list.
There are many things that you can do to a shirt from cutting the neck, sleeves, and around the bottom. If you cut off a little from the sleeves the leftover piece can actually be used as a headband. It is great to use when you are washing your face or going out. You can even make a bracelet from that piece.
Leftovers from the bottom of your tshirt can be turned in to a swanky necklace. What a conversation piece you will have around your neck. You will be the envy of many.
There are many other projects that can be created from the leftovers. The altered tshirts are great not only for teens, but adults; women or men, and even children. Actually, children can get in on the altered action too. What a great way to teach them young how to be frugal.
If you have an interest in learning more, please let me know. I plan to put videos on Youtube as well as offering classes locally. I eventually hope to list my creations on my site too.
One other thing to consider when you are thinking about altered tshirts, what a fun activity to do with your friends for a "Ladies Night Out". This could even be a nice activity for an older child's birthday party. Great party favors will be made out of these shirts.
