Well... to be honest, these were the first projects I made with old t-shirts so this post is very overdue. And if you're my friend of facebook, you've already seen these (sorry), but I'm going to link to a 'How To' if you want to make your own.
Here are two necklaces I made using my husband's old t-shirts that he was looking to give away. (please disregard the poor nature of these photos-- they were taken at the beginning of my "learning to take photos for my blog" adventure-- sorry-- but you get the idea)
tutorial) I had left over from a craft that I did years ago. It was bright yellow, so I had to do a bit more "disguise" work with it in the end, but... it totally worked.
I then went on to make a TON of black , white and grey little pom-pom pins for family for Christmas-- they were great , cute little gifts for all the women in the family. With my husband's 6 sisters, 4 sister-in-laws, (he's 1 of 11 children-- crazy?--I know! Awesome?--Absolutely!!), and his step-mother, PLUS my sister, my mother, my Aunt and Grandmother, I made a LOT of these pins. Once the cutting is done (which is total brainless work), they really go quite quickly-- I did 20 (I think) in a couple of hours (cutting time included).
AND because I wasn't quite sure how the project would go (and it was my first real crafting project in quite a while), I didn't create my own tutorial so.... I'll share the love. I followed this tutorial from Little Miss Momma-- the cutest blogger out there- seriously check her out-- she's adorable!
And if you make one of these necklaces, let me know-- I'd love to see it!
