I started out with a plain ol' t-shirt. I have had this shirt for awhile and actually own another exactly like it. This one, however, has something weird going on with the side seams. Call me crazy, but I like the side seams of a shirt to actually go down the side of the shirt and not the front! LOL! So, this shirt became my guinea pig.
Next thing I did was cut off the top of the shirt. This is was the picture directions told me to do. So, I did it. Then, I began cutting the fringe. The trick is to not cut it too skinny, because you'll cut the thing right off! The other trick is to not cut it too fat because, let's face it, no one wants fat fringe.
