Today, I'm inspired by a pin I pinned about three weeks ago. If you've been following my blog for a while, you know I'm no stranger to crafts made with t-shirts. So far, I've made color block t-shirts, quilts out of t-shirts, and headbands made out of t-shirt strips. I love working with t-shirts because jersey is awesome - it doesn't require hemming unlike cotton, it comes in a billion different colors, and old t-shirts are cheaply and easily obtainable, and often make some pretty neat things.
My sister-in-law graciously gave me a huge bag of t-shirts for crafting, and in there was a few strips of shirts that had already been cut up, which got my wheels turning. I could have made another headband, but I decided to wait and see what else I could do with them.

While my "clasp" isn't nearly as nice - it gets the job done. :) And it actually does look great on and it is ultra light... and can be made very cheaply!
So do you want to make your own? Here's what you'll need.

• 1 non-looped t-shirt piece, about 10" long.
I'm using all navy for this one as I made the white and blue necklace first to see if it could be done first and I didn't have any more white strips! :)
Start by taking one loop and twisting it. I used both hands, rotating in opposite ways and twisted it until it was a tight twist.
Now you've got two chunky loops. Stay with me here for this next step... it's so easy but sort of hard to explain...
Take the third long loop and thread it through the loops at one end, making sure you get the middle of both.
Now it should look like this. Take your 10" unlooped piece and thread it through the two loops at the top.
