  • A plain t-shirt
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Thread and a needle
  • A tape measure

 

1. Cut off the hem of the t-shirt. Cut a vertical slit from middle of the bottom edge of the t-shirt to the spot where you want the knot to be placed. If you want to be precise, use a tape measure to make sure where the middle of the t-shirt is.

3. Take the corner of the side of the slit that does not have a hole. Move it through the hole you just cut. It’s quite helpful to have the shirt on when doing this.
