Make a Cute Tank with a Bow on the Back (T-Shirt Hack)

Did you have a great 4th of July? We sure did! With all the festivities, my girls and I need something patriotic to wear. I was at Michael's and found some "Americana" t-shirts. I loved the graphics (how cute are the designs?!), but the shape wasn't great (big and boxy) and they only came in adult sizes. So I bought three of them and decided to try out a new t-shirt hack.


This hack is easy, turn a boxy T-Shirt into a Racer Back Tank with a Bow!

1. Cut off the sleeves. I cut inside the seam. Start with less, you can always cut off more if needed.



2. On the back only, cut in little deeper- so it looks like a racer back tank.

3. Cut the bottom of shirt to the desired length. All three of these shirts are an adult small, but after the hack- one fit my 5 year old and one fit my 9 year old. To get the length 'just right'- use a shirt you already own as a guide. Lay it on top to help you figure out how much to cut off the bottom. I also rounded it instead of cutting straight across. It makes the shirt 'hang' cuter.

4. Use a scrap from the sleeve to gather the back of the tank. Tie the scrap into a knot - which looks like a bow!


We wore the shirts to both the 'Stars and Stripes in Southlake' on July 3rd and our neighborhood 'Bike Parade' on July 4th.





Now that the holiday weekend is over, I am going to try this t-shirt hack with some of my girls' other t-shirts. This would be cute for a camp shirt don't you think?
