that looks awesome! I think you could do something really cool with buttons or ties to close it shut, too. Like maybe shred the inside edges so you can tie them together?

I'll fer sure try this soon. thanks for the idea! =)

I might try this. It looks simple enough. I've been trying to get into DIY clothing for a while, but I'm not so talented in that department.
I might as well give it a shot. I have plenty of old shirts to practice on. Trial and error. :)

i like it, n buttons are easy, button holes however are harder, but you might get away with not doing them if the fabric doesnt fray at all
