DIY Fringe+Stud T-shirt

I found this amazing wolf t-shirt at one of my favorite Goodwills.  So of course- I had to buy it.  I’ve seen sweet shirts like this at some of my favorite stores, but I’ve never bought one because I always think how I could make it myself for WAYYYY less– and put my own Spin on it.  I decided to make it Super trendy, and fringe the crap out of it!

For those of you who do not regularly fringe- it’s about the easiest thing in the world.  First- cut off the sleeves and around the neckline to give it an unfinished edge.  Measure where you want the fringe to begin, and then put a line of tape at the measurement around the entire shirt.  This will act as your guide. Then take your scissors and cut 1″ strips, as close to straight as you can.  It really doesn’t matter if they get a little crooked, you really can’t tell once it’s done.  Once all your strips are cut, start gently pulling on each strand to make the fabric curl in on itself.  Voila! Your fringing is complete!  Now you can move on to the fun stuff, like studding!!

This part is even easier than the fringing! Here it goes:

Step 1:  Roughly lay out the studs how you think you want them.  I ended up using 5 studs on each shoulder.

Step 2:  Starting with the center stud, gently push the prongs around the shoulder seam of your shirt.  You might want to use a flat head screwdriver to push the prongs down, since they tend to kill your fingers.

Step 3: Place your next studs about 0.5″ away from your first one.  Repeat step 2 until you’ve put as many studs on as you’d like.
