I was browsing my favorite blogs and came across this post about fabric necklaces. Weeks later I remembered that I had a t-shirt that was rolling around the basement so I decided to use it and make my own version of the necklace.

I love my necklace so much and have wanted to share it with you. Here it is! Hope you like.

Step by step:

Cut the bottom edge of the t-shirt. Cut 9 2-inch strips.

Stretch the strips through your hands to allow the fabric to roll up inside itself. Make groups of three strips.

Sew the ends together. Secure the end to a stationary object (like a couch) with a safety pin. Start braiding. I find that a tight braid looks good but avoid pulling and stretching the fabric.

With the braiding and end stitching done cut out three pieces of fabric.

Cut a 5 x 7-inch square of the fabric from the remaining part of the shirt, fold over the three braids and sew. Sew the tube as close to the braids as possible for a perfect fit. Cut off excess fabric and turn right.

Voila! Your necklace is complete.
