Hi, Kristie Prince Hale. And today, I'm going to show you how to trick out a basic T-shirt. We're going to take a look at a couple of examples, so let's start with our first one. We've got a great basic pink T-shirt here and what we're going to do is, concentrate right here on the pocket. Now, there's lots and lots of, all kinds of self-adhesive beads out there and different kinds of beading and all kinds of fun things. So, what we did is, we went to the craft store and simply found some great adhesive, self-adhesive beads. And so, what what we're going to do is, simply pull some of these off and we're going to line them up right here on the pocket. Now, some of the materials you'll find, need to be reinforced with like fabric glue and you might need to wash them inside-out. Or buy a package with some extras and then, that way if any of them come off, you can replace them. But that is a great way to brighten up a basic T-shirt. We've added some bling with that, you can throw on a great blazer. And it's a really great way to update and trick out that T-shirt. Let's take a look at another example. This is a great Cynthia Rowley shirt and all we've done is, taken panels of different fabric and we've replaced the sleeves and the pocket. And it's just a really great, fun way to trick out this basic T-shirt. So, there you have it, use those ideas, get to the craft stores and fabric stores and find out what you can do to your basic T-shirts. Hi, Kristie Prince Hale, thanks for joining me on you how to trick out a basic t-shirt.
