Today's goal was to not leave the house, but make numerous items.  That turned out pretty easy once I realized it was time to RECYCLE!

Now who doesn't have an old T-shirt or two laying around the house? I know I have a million!  So I started hunting through the bunch.
Flower Power Necklace

 I found the prefect old t-shirt laying in a pile. Lately I have been on a tye-dye kick , well maybe it's not a kick? More like an all the time thing!

        That being said, I have some rather rough  looking tye-dyes that I made with a few kids a while back. They were a bit on the lame side with not much of a pattern to them. Anyways! Since they weren't being worn I figured why not make them the perfect accessory to my new favorite tye dyes? Take a peak at my new creations! Smiley


  I also wanted to mention I got the idea while browsing around some awesome craft blogs. I had seen it on numerous pages so I'm not sure who to give the first credit to. However, I started making the Infinity Scarf from a tutorial I found on : Kojo Designs

But it was linked to this awesome page I found full of home made Christmas ideas! The Happy Housewife's list of 100 great home made gifts.



 Sadly, all my tye-dyes are in the wash due to adventure to the farm last weekend. So I had to suffice wit my favorite black tee. Now I'm wondering if I can get away with my tye-dye accents at my "all black" uniform photography job. Guess I will have to see Sunday when I go to work Wink






Thanks for checking it out! Feel free to let me know if you would like me to make one for you.



Happy Crafting.

P.S. Those were all made from one shirt! I was surprised how much I could make from one tee!

Woo!  Pretty!  How did you join the strands at the ends?  Are they knotted, or sewn, or something else?

Ahh I keep trying to reply and it wouldn't post Sad

I cut loops from the bottom of a t-shirt and twisted them and sewed them together,. Wrapped some extra around the stiched portion and made fabric flowers to cover the wrapped part.

The other I braided a few strands and knotted them to a bunch of looped strands and added beads . I stretched them to different lengths to make it more spread out.

I'm gonna try to make a tutorial soon! Or check out the one I saw at Kojo Designs Smiley

I've seen tee shirt necklaces before, but I really like your tie dye ones, they're really colourful.  Great recycling!

I really like the one with the beads.  And the black T-shirt is the perfect foil for those brilliant colors.

I know I posted this forever ago but I just got my desktop computer back with all my photos and things to share with you! Here are some photos of others that I have created since!

These photos are a little less edited so you can see them better. I've been working on more custom ones too!



So glad to be back on craftster to share with all you awesome people again!
