I am so excited about this project! SO. EXCITED.
Here's a fun upcycle idea for t-shirts. I think this would be neat to do at a harp or music camp or as an easy diy gift. If you don't have an old t-shirt and some optional lace laying around, you could likely pick them up at your local thrift store or even dollar store. Potentially economical and eco-friendly.
Step 1: (Optional) Cut off the neckline and bottom seams of the sleeves and shirt.
Step 2: Turn your t-shirt inside out and trace this pattern (or your own!) onto the back of your shirt with chalk (make sure to reverse it!).
Step 3: Cut lines parallel to the "column" of your harp shape. Stretch them out a little when you're done.
Step 4: (Optional) Sew a cute little lace pocket on the front.
Bonus project: Make a dog or cat toy by braiding, knotting, etc. part you cut off. Just make sure your pet doesn't eat it, get tangled in it, or anything!
