T-shirt Necklaces & Lassos

The kiddos and I decided to make t-shirt necklaces, a friend told me about it at my bookclub.  I had an old purple shirt and we talked about ways we could recycle it and then we went to work! 

The materials - seriously, this is all you need!

The hardest part - cut the bottom of the shirt off.

After the hem is off, start cutting your strips.  And as you will see, they do not have to be perfect.

Now, stretch, stretch & stretch some more.  The strip will loop up on itself.

B stretching hers.

 You can wear them as long necklaces or layer them.  D has hers layered above.  The possibilities and colors are endless.  And the whole project took less than 10 minutes.

 A in her finished necklace!

C made his into a lasso, which he used all day long to rope chairs and other various objects around our house, pretty cool C!

Even Daddy had some fun teaching A how to make things using her new craft.
