DIY - How to reconstruct your old tshirt

1:05:00 AM

Do you know Adam Saaks? He is well known as a designer at Ed Hardy but he's actually a t-shirt ripper or t-shirt cutter, even some people called him a t-shirt circumsizer -lol. He is famous for his signature style of ripping Ed Hardy tshirts into a whole new top! I personally would consider it an art rather than a tshirt because it's just fabulous, fantastic and awe-inspiring. I mean we should collect these tshirts he made, we don't buy it, we collect it ^o^

I know most of you probably didn't know about who Adam Saaks is. I knew about him just days ago, from youtube ;p Adam Saaks is famous for turning a simple Ed Hardy tshirts into another form of cool sexy tshirt just by using a scissor! And usually in less than 10 minutes! Here's what I did last Thursday:

In order to achieve something like this:

I learned from this tutorial video and made my DIY:

And here's what I came up with:

Ha! I know it's a bit rough and far from the tutorial video but it's not bad for me whose known for always having a really low scores on DIY-ing. I'm always bad when it comes to DIY, I'm a sloppy crafter and I don't have the patient to work on much details. So based on my experience, I started this project by using an ugly and very old tshirt of mine instead using one of my jersey tee (i suspect the tshirt used in the tutorial vid is made of jersey or 100% cotton) because I'm afraid that it would fail and instead of getting a new look I'm afraid I will be ruining the tee. So that's why I test it first by using another tee that is neither a jersey or a 100% cotton. And that explain why I didn't get smaller cut-ups strings, and why it's a little rough here and there. But judging from this first attempt, I think I might try a second and maybe a third attempt because I like the result, I like how it gives a crocheted look as well as a little bit edgy look on the tshirt.

How bout wearing it backwards?

which one do you think more cool?
wear the ripped part on the front or on the back?

You can check out other Adam Saaks creations on youtube. The tutorial above is from itsblitzzz. Thanks to her, she made it possible for us to (at least) create a tshirt similarly like Adam Saaks's creations. Well, it's just a basic tutorial, but with some creative thinking and imagination I strongly believe you could also create what Adam Saaks does. Why don't you give it a try? I mean it's just a tshirt and a scissor, right? ^o^
