Repurpose your old t-shirts with this incredibly easy DIY necklace tutorial.
DIY T-shirt Necklace Steps 1-3
What You’ll Need: Two t-shirts | chain | clasp | scissors
Step 1: Cut out six strips of your t-shirts about 1 inch wide.
Step 2: Take three of your strips and bundle them together.  Form a loop (as illustrated above).  This is the first step in creating a sailors knot.
Step 3: Take your second bundle of strips and arrange it as shown above.

Step 4: Weave the second bundle of strips over and under the first as illustrated above.
Step 5:  Pull your knot tightly from both sides (ensuring that you have the same amount of material left on each side) and your knot will look like this.
Step 6: Once your knot is in good shape, flip it to the side and separate the strands into three little bundles of two strands, as shown above.  Begin a flat braid.
Step 7: Once you have reached your desired length or end of your fabric, take one of the strands, wrap it around the braid, and firmly knot.

 Step 8: Take another one of the strands, and slide on your chain.
Step 9: Firmly cross this strand over and tie another knot, so that the chain is now on a loop of cotton.
Step 10: Cut all of the ends off, leaving just one strand.
Step 11: Wrap the one strand of cotton around and around, covering up the cut ends and knots. Tuck the ends of this last strand back through the braid.
