t-shirt necklace how-to

i found this project about a year back and have been making these funky, t-shirt necklaces ever since.  i love pashminas and scarves, but they're a little heavy for summer.  these necklaces work great all-year round' and you're guaranteed compliments when you wear one.  they are the perfect casual accessory and add a bit of pizazz to a simple t-shirt & jeans kinda outfit.  plus, they're simple to make...and they're "green".  simply fabulous, if you ask me.

supplies:
t-shirt (preferably one you already own, so you can "recycle" it)
scissors
needle & thread

total time: 15 min

cut t-shirt into strips


stretch the cut loops, reserving the hem of the t-shirt for later

stretched loops (and hem to the left of the picture)

gather loops

bring opposite sides together

tie one end with hem

allow for a 5-6" gap and tie other end with hem

wrap extra hem fabric back around itself

once you reach the end of the hem fabric, stitch it in place to keep it from unraveling

voila!  lovely t-shirt necklace : )

wear with a smile

  12. Currently it looks like Drupal is the top blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?
