How to recycle an old tee into a bikini


Teekini Top

1. Find an old T-shirt (not too transparent)—the bigger the better.

2. Lay your T-shirt out flat.
3. Cut off the bottom hem of the T-shirt.
4. Cut off two more 1.5-inch-wide strips from the bottom to use as straps.
5. Lay out and pin an existing bikini top out onto the front of the T-shirt (make sure not to pin it through to the back!). T-shirt fabric does not need hemming, so it won’t fray after it’s been cut. Should you, however, choose to hem your suit, add a 1-inch seam allowance on all sides of the pattern.
6. Now outline the pattern onto the T-shirt. Once you are finished, cut the shape out of the front of your T-shirt.
7. Remove the bikini from the T-shirt fabric. You’ll notice that your top has very short straps. Cut out two strips at least 6 inches long, from your leftover scraps. Tip: Feel free to use a different stretch or jersey fabric to add color or flavor!
8. Hand-sew each strip onto the short ties of your bikini top so that your straps are long enough to tie in a bow. Trick of the trade: Once the straps are sewn on, tug on them to make them more string-like.
9. We added a lace detail and dyed our bikini top, but feel free to use your creative energies and add your own touch.

7. You will notice that your bottoms has very short straps. Cut out two strips at least 6 inches long and 2 inches wide from your leftover scraps. Tip: Feel free to use a different fabric for the strips to add color or flavor! 
8. Hand-sew each strip onto the short ties of your bikini bottom so that your straps are long enough to tie in a bow. Tip of the trade: Once the straps are sewn on, tug on them to make them more string-like. Fold the bottoms in half lengthwise and tie side straps to fit
