I had so much fun making this t-shirt necklace! It's fun and easy to do. For this one I used a plain old grey t-shirt, but you could use a colorful tye-dyed one or a mixture of various colors. Here are some basic instructions:
1. Lay the t-shirt flat on the table. Cut off the bottom band. Now cut layers straight across so that you have round cylinders of t-shirt fabric.
2. Pull on the round pieces of fabric and they will curl in on themselves to form tubes
3. Place the fabric around your neck and measure for length. If you would like the necklace shorter, cut each strand and then tie one to the length you like. Now measure all the others so they match that length, but don't tie them. Just cross their ends over at the spot where they would tie. Tie the necklace together at that spot with another piece of fabric.
4. Now you have your basic necklace. You can embellish it with buttons (lots or just a few lovely ones), a fancy pin that you change with your outfits, old mismatched earrings, little dangly things that hang from your cell phone or purse, or any other decorative thing you might like. (I have a sheriff's pin my husband purchased for me that I'm planning to pin on one day soon!)
If you have any questions, let me know!
