Tank Tops made from T-shirts
July 6, 2013
I just love pinterest! It is such a great way to find ideas and inspirations for just about everything.
These tank tops were projects I found on pinterest and decided to make. Both of them use a t-shirt to make the tank.
The royal purple one above was made using the directions I found from the Wobisobi site. The project is called No Sew Halter and if you click on the highlighted text it will take you to the tutorial. It is very easy to follow and requires no sewing. I have made two of these now. There are lots of other no sew t-shirt ideas and tutorials on this blog as well.
The red one to the left was made using a tutorial from crafterhours blog. It is called tee to tank and if you click on the highlighted text it will take you to the tutorial. I also found this through pinterest. This particular tank does require a little bit of sewing. I added a little of my own creativity to this one by hemming the bottom by couching down a variegated yarn that I had leftover in my stash from another project. I also used this yarn to knit some i-cord for the straps at the top and neckline. The i-cord then ties on one side. I really like how this tank top turned out.
After making the red tank top I got inspired to use my pattern making program, Bernina My Label, and make my own version of this tank. I used part of the halter top pattern that is from the My Label patterns and this batik fabric to make the multi color version below.
All of these tank tops are super easy and quick to make. A great way to recycle an old t-shirt and create something new to wear for summer.
I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. It is hot here in Texas so I will probably be wearing one of these tank tops this weekend.

Your tank tops are really cute, and I agree that they are a great way to re-purpose t-shirts.
