Racerback tanktop tutorial! (NO SEW!)

So I have seen a bunch of these before, and I LOVE them! However, some require sewing, and, well, I can hem a pair of jeans (which I tend to have to do a lot since I’m only 5’1″) and I can sew a button on.

This one requires NO sewing! That makes one happy Holley 🙂

Here’s how to do it:

Racerback Tanktop


1 t shirt (use one about a size bigger than you actually wear because it ends ups loose, but tight up top if you have a big chest.)

Some ribbon



First, cut the neck, arms, and bottom like this:


You may want to trim the neck a bit more. I’ve made two of these and I always end up trimming it to be a little lower neckline.

Next cut a strip of ribbon and tie the back two straps together.


That’s it! You’re done! 🙂 This one went to my sister. Here’s her modeling it:


She just woke up and said she looked like a mess so she hid her face from the camera. Haha


You could always use fabric paint or sharpies to add something to the front if it’s a solid color like this one.

(Sorry for the sideways pictures, I didn’t know how to rotate them on this laptop.)

Color Coated Keys

Okay, so you know that moment when you come across something on Pinterest and have that moment of, “Oh my gosh, that is so simple! Why didn’t I think of that before?!”

I have those a lot.

Here is something that is so simple it will blow your mind.

Paint your keys with nail polish to know what key goes to what and it’s pretty cute. 😉

Here’s what mine look like:


(Having them color coated makes them much easier to tell Patrick which key to use when he needs to get into Mamaw’s house so he can get some sleep.)

Ta-da! Now I don’t feel so dumb anymore. I can share my dumbness with you. (:
