I have been doing too much blog surfing and too little working over the past week! Finally, last night I had the ambition to make something...these adorable t-shirt bracelets inspired by Haute to Sew!
First, grab some old t-shirts in the colors you want to make.
Cut 1 to 1 1/2 inch wide strips from the shirt. I cut across the width of my shirts. Then STRETCH the strips until they look like this:
I debated whether to braid three strands or double them up for a wider bracelet. I couldn't decide, so I made both kinds! Next, glue or sew the ends of the strands together. I sewed my first bracelet, but soon resorted to my trusty glue gun to do the rest! I clipped the end of the bracelet to my clip board and braided about 7 inches...just measure your wrist and braid the desired length.
After the bracelet is the length you want, stitch or glue the end, attach both ends and take a small piece of fabric to cover the rough edges.
Here are the ones that I did...so far! They are really fun and easy to make! The single strand ones:
