At moment I'm spending a lot of time finding ways to upcycle clothes. Today I decided to do something with some old t-shirts and this is what I came up with:
And a fabric necklace!
This is what I started with...
The arms of the smaller stripy shirt were cut and stretched for the bracelets..
Then strips from the main body of the t-shirts were cut for the braided things.
Three strips of different colours together - just tie them together with a knot at the top, wedge the knot into a draw to hold firmly, and plait (braid) away!
Tie a knot to finish off the other end, then wind the plait (braid) around on a flat surface to form a circle.
Then use a needle and thread to secure it all into place!
I've barely used any of these t-shirts - could make lots of these! Maybe a full set of coasters - or maybe just some more circles to add as embellishments!
What do you think?
Love the colors. I have a weakness for pink and red together.ReplyDelete
