Start by cutting the sleeves off, seams too.
Next cut the collar off.
Now fold your shirt in half, this is to find the middle.
Cut a staright line all the way up your shirt. Make sure its the front your cutting. Or if you want the ties in the back, make sure your cutting the back.
Now fold your shirt in half again. With the cut sides lined up together. Start cutting 1" width pieces 3" long, all the way up.
Start tying double knots all the way up.
Try the shirt on, I untied the top knot.
Took the two strips behind the shirt and brought them back to the front and tied a double knot.
I like it this way much better.
It's fun and different.
