Upcycled t-shirt into a bracelet

I have a bunch of old t-shirts that I’ve had since high school. Why do I still have them? Don’t ask. Just don’t. But alas they are not really wear-able anymore because they are so worn down and mis-shapen {due to, well, umm, time… and the fact that I wore many of them during pregnancy, thanks to the fact that I never got big enough for those tent-like maternity shirts to be worn comfortably. I loved my bella band}.

I saw this tutorial from V and Co. a while ago and have wanted to try it ever since… and finally, I did.

I didn’t buy jersey knit material. I took one of those totally mis-shapen, not-even-good-enough-for-good-will t-shirts, started at the bottom, and cut the entire thing into one terribly long 1-in wide strip, and then followed the directions Vanessa has here, for the 2-fingers bracelet.

No pictures of the process here, folks. Head on over to her site :)

Now I just need to figure out what to do with the rest of this t-shirt. I highly suggest that if you make this, make it a girly craft night, because you’ll likely have enough fabric from one t-shirt to make several of these!
