How to Cut an Awesome Web T-Shirt 15 comments


cutting a tshirtFor my birthday one year, me and my husband went to a video game midnight release party for the Xbox One. I got a t-shirt as a door prize and guess what? The date, my birthday, was printed on the arm. I decided to make something special out of this tee.

Here’s how I did it:

First, I folded the t-shirt into thirds. Then, I cut 1/2 inch slits along the folds.
