**D.I.Y- Folded Arms Shirt
I love this quirky, folded arms shirt from Creatures of Comfort; so much so that I decided to make one of my own (pictured above). Here’s how-
White button down (or other) cotton shirt, scissors, white thread, needle, sewing machinge
1. Carefully cut off the sleeves. Start at the underarm area of one sleeve about a 1/4 from the edge. Snip a small hole and insert your scissor tips. Cut all the way around. Do the same with the second sleeve.
3. & 4. Pin each sleeve to sides just below the armhole working down.
6. Give the shirt a good pressing with an iron.
