If You Want Something Do It Yourself: Color Block Tee

I feel like it's been way too long since I've done a diy post, so I'm really happy to be back with one. Since adding a color block blouse into my wardrobe, I felt myself wanting more of it...I may be just a bit late on this trend but I don't care. If you don't care either and want to add some color block to your life you're gonna love this...so easy, fast, and it really gives an your clothing some new life.

1. Turn your tees inside out. I measured 2 inches down from the armhole and made a mark on each side. Draw a line connecting the two markings so you know where to cut.
2. Cut along the line you just drew...repeat steps 1 & 2 for the second shirt.
3. Pin the contrasting tops and bottoms together.
4. Sew together

I think this would be fun if you mixed a solid tee and with a tee that has a fun print.
Let me know if you try it out.
