The next few posts will be a bit outside the box. I had a stack of old t-shirts that we were done with, but really weren't suitable for donation. I decided that instead of throwing them away I should try to repurpose the fabric. Pinterest was very helpful in pursuing projects, as were craft blogs. I'm not a sewer, and hadn't used a sewing machine in 10 years when I started these projects! So I started slow and my first go was with making t-shirt necklaces.
The tutorial is here. The first necklace I made was hand-sewn, then the others were by machine. These are ridiculously easy to make. If your jersey is not as stretchy then the pieces don't curl around on themselves as well, but I like the different texture it gives the necklace. These necklaces are perfect if you have a baby: they are soft, won't break and are washable!
