You see, everyone has some old tees lying around, and we're no exception. It's killing two birds with one stone (which is a terrible saying, by the by) - you're getting rid of the dull old t-shirt and creating something amazing you really want for practically nothing.
All you have to do is buy gems. We went to A.C.Moore and got three packs of assorted gems, and they were just $2.99 each - and we had plenty to spare after the project was over. Make sure to get sew-on. Don't worry if you're not a big sewing expert, we are FAR from that. I've sewed like twice in my life. But you don't want to get into glueing them on because they will fall off quickly, I promise. Once you have your gems, a needle and thread and your t-shirts, start laying out your design! Once you're happy with something, just start sewing. This took us about two hours, to give you an idea of time commitment - not bad to get a $170 look for $9, and a pretty rad statement tee that I'm excited to let peek out from lower necklines, jackets, and even wear on its own.
