Crafty jewelry: recycling t-shirt into bead bracelet
Jewelry making

 

For this activity you need an old tshirt or one from the thrift store in whatever color you want.  I used a basic white undershirt.  You also need about 13 pony beads, a large size crochet hook and scissors.  The first thing you do is cut the bottom hem off the tshirt.  Then you cut a 1 inch row off the entire bottom – that is what will make your bracelet (each tshirt will make quite a few depending on the size of the tshirt).  Put the rest of the tshirt aside for now.  I was making two so you see two strips.  You should have a circular strip – stretch that strip so it curls in on itself and becomes more like a cord.

Like I have noted previously I can’t read patterns so I “wing things”.  I have been crocheting since the age of five but I never really learned how to start and it is probably very easy but since I have been doing what I do since the age of five and it always works – why fix what ain’t broke.  But – in case you wish to do it correctly - use a slip not to create your needle loop.  I generally just knot (regular old knot) and leave a loop – whichever.  Leave a tail of approximately three inches.  Add a bead to the tshirt cord – slid it all the way down to the hook.  Use your hook to chain one (any direction) then add another bead.  Keep doing this until the bracelet is the correct size for the person you are making it for which should be between 10-13 beads.  Tie off the end.  Wrap the bracelet around a wrist – tie multiple knots so it doesn’t come undone – trim the excess – and you are done.  I crochet tightly so when I was done I had to kind of nudge the beads into the natural slot in the middle of each chain to look the way it does.  So if it doesn’t look like this, just do the same, give each bead a gentle nudge!
