First (and probably our last) DIY project: “Recycled” t-shirt necklace

While Alex is in Washington, I’m currently staying in Gran Canaria taking care of Sam. Since I forgot nearly all my accessories (or maybe because I’m just generally bored), I decided to make my own necklace from an old t-shirt. (Well, now I actually went to a store and bought myself a brand new t-shirt but I have to say “old” otherwise I cannot call it a recycling, eco-friendly project).

The whole idea might sound a bit crazy but if you look around you will see that there are tons of inspirational DIY videos and bloggers showing how to make these type of necklaces (see I’m not the only lunatic out there). Basically, it just takes an hour (excluding all the time it took me to find the damn t-shirt in the store). 

1.Lay the t-shirt flat and cut 1-2 cm strips. Pull and stretch each strip so they become long and thin.

2. Use a bit of left over fabric from the t-shirt and wrap the strips together.
