DIY: Fringe Net Tank


I saw this tank at Planet Blue a while ago and loved the style, so I decided to convert this tank dress into something like it. And then I bought Guitar Hero with the money saved. And I'm picking up a second guitar tonight because it's depressing when you play that game alone (it's an open invite if you want to play with me, come over!). And yes, the game is old. But your grandma's old, and you still spend time with her. So don't judge.

Here are the steps:

1. Cut the tank into even strips.

2. Divide the strips into pairs and knot them for the first tier.

3. Take a strip from each knot and knot those ones to create the second tier.

And so here's another easy DIY without using the sewing machine. Happy fringing!

  44. I did this with yarn to make a necklace. I am now tempted to cut one of my t-shirts to do this. I love my grandmas and would gladly spend every week with them but guitar hero is a lost cause for me, I can play the flute, but for the life of my i cannot make my fingers move fast enough to play guitar hero. wish I lived near you, I would still come hehe

  45. This DIY is awesome!! I can't wait to try it out. I am also loving the fact that it doesn't involve any sewing.
