tshirt yarn necklace

Chris had a bunch of tshirts to give away, so I thought I would try to make one of those fun necklaces I always see on Etsy.  Making the yarn was SO easy.  I just followed this tutorial and it took maybe 5 minutes.  The result isn't too fancy, as you can see, but it does provide nice handles for Cam.

But I warn you, it is addictive.  I was at Value Village the other day and saw this nice purple T shirt (for some college dorm or something) so I picked it up and made another.
(Same shirt - different day!) This one had no seams up the sides and so it made one long tube, which I really liked.  I also like the colour!  And it is nice and snuggly.  However, the ones on Etsy are much more polished-looking, or at least they take better photos.  Here are a few:
from Minuit12

from tiemee

my favourite, from foulardthreads (check this shop, I LOVE it!)

Looking at these, maybe I will find a slightly lighter purple and wind it in to make it a little more substantial.  Or maybe I should just wind it a little more artfully.  Who knows?  I tell ya, these are fun.  Guess what everyone is getting this Christmas?? :)

Thank you so much for your comment - they always make my day!
