Today I’m going to show my latest project!
I’ve been thinking on making it for a while now and when I went to my parents I started to make it!
I told myself to leave it to Christmas but I just couldn’t resist. It’s a super fast project to make and I didn’t feel like having too much trouble so there are a few mistakes in it. I followed this tutorial – UPDATE: the link was broken but I found a similar tutorial here.

Combining my love for reading and for easy diy projects, I dyed an old t-shirt that I rarely used with bleach. Statement t-shirts are kinda of cool and this was the final result: I saw many of these projects around the internet but only now […]
