Project Instructions

Cut about 6" off the bottom of the black T-shirt and cut a scoop neck on the top. Turn the black shirt inside out and trace pattern with a white colored pencil.

Place cutting mat inside the shirt so that you cut through the front side only. Cut out the skull pattern with a rotary cutter. Flip the shirt over to cut the back.

Using a ruler, cut two 4" horizontal lines that are 2" apart. Repeat this all the way down the back of the shirt.

Trim a few inches of the sleeves and create slashes on the sides.

Cut the sleeves and neck from the pink T-shirt to create a tank top.

To embellish your headpiece, gather white tulle and hot glue it to the top of headband.
