Wooohoooo! It is summer time. The air is hot, the BBQ pit is lit (ok not really) and the river is waiting. Tomorrow I am headed out to float the river and I am so excited! BUT, I don't want to go out in my swimsuit because I feel like I am in that stage of pregnancy where I look fat and not pregnant; so I decided to make a cover up thing.
So first I got one of my Dad's T-shirts:
Then I cut the sleeves and the collar off (I actually cut the collar several times after I was done until I was satisfied with how it looked.)
Then I cut the sleeves into to three strips each ( I forgot to take pictures.) Next you are going to use a bottle of some sort to help you braid three of the strips together.
Then you take one of the braids and loop it through the sleeves like so:
|Keith says HI!|
And tie a knot.
Turn it around so the knot is on the inside and TADA:
At this point I tried it on several times and cut the collar as I saw fit. I also tied each strap with a bit of left over t-shirt to make the sleeves thinner.
And last I cut the bottom rim of the t-shirt so that it would be flowy.
Here is the front:
