striped tee necklace...

Mar 9, 2011

this necklace makes me sad and happy all at the same time... sad because it USED to be my favorite shirt {got some crazy hole right at my belly button of all places!} and now its my go-to necklace... stripes go with everything right!

lets get started...
 you only need about half a shirt {i kept the top half and layer it over long tanks when i teach dance}
and scissors...
thats it!

cut strips in your shirt seam to seam to create big loops...
stretch them out just a pinch...

save the hem and one extra loop for later...

stack up your loops and line up the side seams so you can cover them up...

cut your "hem" into a strip and tie one end around the seams, same thing to the other side

pick up your necklace by the "hem " 
almost done!

use your extra strip.. {cut off the side seams to make 2} wrap around the knot and seams to give it a more polished look 
{as polished as a jersey necklace an be!}

this necklace takes all of 20 whole minutes to make... and goes with everything! still i feel one in every color couldn't hurt.. ;)

try one and tell us about it! we love to see your creations!
happy snipping!
