In this Instructable, I am going to show you how to create a cute braided belt out of an old t-shirt.

Step 1: Materials

1. T-shirt

2. Scissors

3. Colored Pencil

4. Ruler

The more colorful the t-shirt is, the more colorful the belt will be. Also, designs on the shirt make interesting details around the belt after it has been braided together. If the t-shirt you are using is white, and you would like it another color, look into using fabric dye or tie dye.
Thank you. It is so simple to make too! I was thinking of looking into different braiding techniques if I make more.
nice little re-use! I'd suggest looking at the types of knotting used for making hemp bracelets, that would even allow you to incorporate beads and the like. Just a thought
