Re-purposed shirt

The other day I was browsing Pinterest and found a tutorial for how to turn a long-sleeved shirt into a cute short-sleeved shirt. I have several shirts that have sleeves that are too short for my long arms, so I decided to give the tutorial a try.  

Start with a long-sleeved t-shirt.

Cut off the sleeves!

Cut the cuff off of the sleeve and cut the sleeve down the seam.

Starting at the "shoulder," scrunch up the sleeve.

When you are done making the bow, wrap the cuff around the middle to keep it together.

Sew the bow onto the top of the shirt!  I just did several random stitches until I felt like it was well attached!

That's it!  I also put some anti-fray stuff on the arm holes just in case.
