T-Shirt Necklace

I made my first t-shirt necklace today.  My friend had one on the other day her sister-in-law made and I immediately wanted to make one.  So at the thrift store the other day I found a suitable shirt and today made it up!  I like it, but would also like to try another one and possibly a children's shirt for a shorter length necklace or maybe just a smaller adult shirt that stretches less.  Now I will be scouring my closet for old t-shirts!  :)  So, here it is!  If you would like to try this yourself, you can find the tutorial here.

Here was my original shirt:
 And the end result:

You may notice I took a couple strips that I thought were too long and wrapped them around my wrist for a matching "bracelet".

Here I took a strip from the sleeve of the shirt and looped it around the necklace to make a "tie" look that I thought was kind of fun.  :)
