5 minute T-Shirt to No Sew Skirt

Turn an old too large t-shirt into a skirt in 5 minutes or less!
(Note: I realize their stains on this shirt and plan on embellishing this project to cover them up - this is just to show how to make the skirt and you can embellish yours any way you want).

Items needed:

  • A too large t-shirt
  • Scissors
  • 2 yds or ribbon 1/4 in. ribbon
  • 2 safety pins
  • 4 beads (optional)

Lay out the T-Shirt on a flat surface.

Cut just underneath the arms straight across.

Flip the bottom part upside down, what was the bottom of the t-shirt will now be the top where you insert the casing.

Fold the T-Shirt in half to determine where to make the cut to put the ribbon.

Pinch the top layer make a small cut (but large enough to fit your ribbon through.)

Pin a safety pin into the end of one ribbon and thread it through the edge all the way around.

Try on the skirt and cut the ribbon the length that you want it to be if you want to (I didn't cut it on the above one and will probably just leave it that way).

Tie knots in the ends of both ribbons. Thread two beads on each saftey pin and pin into the knots to keep them from slipping back through and you have skirt to wear or embellish any way you would like.
