My upcycle project is based on the t-shirt design above. I felt inspired by the design because when I was in high school I would wear a shoe lace belt instead of a normal belt. A regular belt holds up better but I liked the style of the shoe lace belt more. It gave more of an urban/edgy appearance. When a few of my favorite cinematographers released this product I knew this was something I needed.
I am going to create something similar with one of my plain white shirts and probably a white shoe lace. I have made small progress but need to be able to open up a whole on the bottom of the shirt to feed the lace through. Once I have this figured out, the next step will to be to sew down the shoe lace and adjust the length of the lace properly.
This project is intriguing because it’s pretty simple, yet there is a fashion statement involved, at a relatively cheap price.
