T-Shirt Refashion: Jersey Necklace

T-Shirt Refashion: Jersey Necklace
Sometimes I feel like I ride on the coattails of creative people. Back in January as I was surfing my favorite blogs, I came across this post on Ultra Vroom about cardigans and fabric necklaces. I instantly fell in love and had to have a fabric necklace for my very own. I week or so later I remembered the large stash of white jersey hanging around the basement and hap-hazardly made my own version of Annie‘s fabric necklace. If I remember correctly, I wore that necklace for 4 days in a row. I didn’t really take it off until Penelope bumped her mouth on the table and bled all over me (Penelope is ok, BTW). I love my necklace so much, I’ve been wanting to share it with you for sometime, but haven’t worked on the tutorial until just now. Materials: 1 XXL or XXXL men’s t-shirtScissors and/or rotary cutterSewing machine and or needle & thread Cut off the bottom hem of the shirt. Cut open one end of each strip. Sew coiled ends together. Voila! P.S.
