Arm Party hosted by Ilene and Lenora. I had such a blast making my bracelet for my partner, that I couldn't wait any longer and I had to share what I made! PS, if you are Marielena, please stop reading now, as yours is currently in transit. :)
Just to make sure you aren't reading any further, I shall now distract you with cuteness....
For the rest of you, I wanted to share my creation and how I made it. Happy crafting!
First, gather a pile of old t-shirts, two key rings, scissors, a hot glue gun and a needle and thread.
Now, cut three strips from your old tshirts a little larger than the length of your wrist. I just wrapped around my wrist and cut about 2 inches extra. Yes, I'm that precise.
Now, here's the fun part. I tugged my strips so they curled, stacked them one on top of the other and put a little stitch through them to keep them in place. Then, I just started braiding.
Trust me, it's much cuter on!
So easy and definitely a great use for those old tshirts. Upcycling at its finest!
