How to Cut Up a T-Shirt and Reconstruct into a Wrap

Earlier this summer we purchased two tie-dyed t-shirts with the intent to cut them up and create new hoop dancer costumes with them. Since our blog has become quite popular with people searching for hoop dance clothing and costumes, I thought I would make a DIY no sew video tutorial and share how I cut up these t-shirts to make them different and more exciting than any plain old shirt. I’ve experimented cutting up many other t-shirts and I’ve created at least 5 different styles that work really well. I was happy that this wrap around knotted version turned out for me on my first attempt. They work swell as hula hooping outfits!

The final result…
