Hi there. This is Mo of Mo West Creations. Today, I'm going to share with you a really fun idea of how to spice up your T-shirt sleeves with no sewing, only cutting. So here is what we're going to end up doing. It makes this really nice peekaboo shoulder bow, kind of look and this can be done on either a large T-shirt or a fitted one, works both ways. What you want to do is start cutting and cut right up next to the outside of that shoulder seam. Just make sure that you have a nice clean cut and cut it down as far as you're going to want it, maybe halfway to the armpit seam and then you're going to cut straight across from there like so so you end up with this kind of a little extra shape. Keep that and then find the center of your sleeve and fold it just like an accordion fold. Starting with your hem, fold it down and then the hem width fold up, down, up, down, straight up across the top of your sleeve and the top should end also going down until you have a nice pleated top like that. Then you're going to take that strip and wrap it around and tie it. And you can let the edges hang kind of like a bow, stretch it out a little bit, keep your edges nice and there you have it. One simple way that you might never have thought to spice up the sleeves on your T-shirt. This has been Mo of Mo West Creations, ciao.
