Weekend Projects

Here are the Cricut creations I talked about in my last post.

After finishing these I decided to try to make a t-shirt necklace. I don’t know how I feel about it yet, but it is complete.

Start with a t-shirt you don’t need any more. The one below has a small stain on the chest.

Cut the top and bottom off.

Then cut the body of the shirt into strips about 3/4″ thick. Do not cut the strips all the way. Leave them connected on one end.

Then gather the strands and loop them like a necklace. Cut one end from the connected end so that the strands are still all connected on one end, but not connected on the other end.

Split the strands into thirds, and braid the strands. I left about half of the strands not braided.

I then hand stitched the ends together.
