You will use BOTH SIDES of the shirt.  FIRST cut the buttoned up section leaving 2-3 inches on both sides.  Do Not cut through to the back.

Second, using the electric heating pad as a guide cut out TWO sections of the Back of the Shirt using 2-3 extra inches on all sides. So that you will have a front and a back.

Now McGyver  one side of the button section along the top and sew into place.  I used a sewing machine but you could hand stitch it.  I DID NOT try to make this perfect, because I am a beginning sewer so I just had to wing it as I went.

See?  Not perfect but it worked!!!  That way you can have the cord come out the side.

Basically you are sewing an envelope and then re-attaching the cut out button section.
