Today I am sharing a tutorial that I posted earlier in the summer over on Lolly Jane. And, the project from this tutorial has turned into one of the most worn, loved, and used item of the summer.
Who knew it would be a NO SEW Swimsuit Cover-Up!?!
Both my girls love them. And they only cost $2 to make!!!! And they come together by following only 3 steps!!!
(Why is it always the easiest projects that seem to be the most loved?)
All you need to make these are:
*A pair of scissors
*A T-shirt (I used a women’s small that I bought at the Dollar Store.)
*A pack of pony beads (Also purchased at the Dollar Store….and there were enough left over to do oodles more of these cover-ups.)
And here are the 3 Step Instructions:
#1. Cut the finished edges off of both arms and the bottom hem of your T-shirt.
#2. Cut up from the bottom of your shirt about 3 inches about every half inch across the shirt. (Don’t stress over this…cutting does not need to be exact.)
#3. Slide beads onto your three inch strips and tie a knot. (Put on as many or as few beads as you would like.)
So that’s it. Super simple, super cheap, and super useful! (Three of my favorite things.)
In fact they are so easy and inexpensive to make that we had the guests at my 7 year old daughters birthday party each make their own…and it was a huge hit!
(And we’ve seen them around the neighborhood all summer long! Which has been fun to!)
So there you have it…the girls favorite project of the summer…the most loved, most worn…and easiest project ever to make!
