DIY: Workout T-shirt

Jackie Mantey, Columbus Alive

Looking for some new workout tops? Save your money and go shopping in your closet. This DIY project lets you transform a tired tee into a fitness favorite - all done in three steps, no less.





1) Cut the neck, sleeves and bottom seam off of the T-shirt.

2) Flip the shirt over to the backside and trim about an in inch in from each shoulder to the seam at each armpit. Then cut a "V" from the neck to about the space between your shoulder blades.

3) Cut the ring of fabric that was once the bottom of the T-shirt to make it one long strip. Bunch together the fabric between the arm holes, making a racerback shape. Knot the strip to the top of the racerback, just above the mouth of the V. Wrap the strip around the gathered racerback to the point of the V then wrap it back to the top. Knot the end of the strip.

4) Stop procrastinating by making workout T-shirts and hit the pavement.
