[1] diy old shirt necklace
via cucumbersome's instructable
you'll need:
- a teeshirt (any color)
- scissors
1. grab your teeshirt and fold it in half
2. cut off the hem on the bottom
3. cut strips of the teeshirt according to the diagram, all the way up to the underarms of the shirt.
4. take the pieces you've cut and stretch them out a bit
5. if the length of the circular piece you've cut is too long, wrap around twice.
6. gather all the circular pieces and cut another strip (not circular, basically a long string)
7. use the cut strip and wrap it around any point of the gathered pieces.
8. secure by tying, or sewing it.
