DIY Cosmic Shirt Top
If you’re into fashion, then you’d know one of the latest craze are “cosmic shirts” and since I’m a frugal shopper [plus I’m broke already after shopping for xmas] I have no choice but to keep gawking at those stylish tees. Then it hit me, why should I let myself sulk in misery for not being able to get what I want when I can make one for myself! I haven’t been into crafts lately but I have been known to be the “makalkal” type as I was growing up. I learned how to operate my great grandmothers vintage sewing machine at the age of 10. I even sheered and cut my way out of our old curtain fabric so I can make a so-called dress back then. Which is why at one point my mama had wanted me to pursue interior designing but I didn’t. Oh well, that is a whole different story already. Back to our cosmic shirt design… in my opinion, just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean you can’t have it… Money isn’t always an issue if you let creativity take over. :] Can’t buy it, Make it! ♥
Typical DIY Tutorials for cosmic shirts requires you to have a Fabric Paint or some dye and since I want to make use of what I have at my disposal I tried Nail Polish and it worked just fine. 🙂
WARNING: HEAVY IMAGE POST AHEAD!

So there you have it! Your very own custom made cosmic shirt. I didn’t even have to spend any to get the shirt I wanted! But be warned, it is time consuming. It took me about 3 hours to finish it all up! The knotting is the longest one to do and will require lots of patience. ;] Also just so you know, your fingers might end up a little sore after all the tugging, knotting and pulling. If you can, while spraying bleach on the shirt have a mask or bandanna over your nose. I just can’t deal it as I feel like I’m suffocating but then after a few hours of being exposed [right now] I tend to feel so sick-ish and dizzy. Please bleach with caution. Will post pictures of the look later. For now I’m off to rest and this post is getting quite long already. 😛 Let me know what y’all think! If you have any questions, request or suggestions feel free to let me know. xox
