Step 1: Supplies Needed
Lots and lots of pull tabs from soda, beer, or energy drink aluminum cans.
needle nose or jewelers pliers
beading or jewelry wire
Round key rings or D rings to connect at sides and at sleeves. I used 18 1" key rings.
Duct tape for lining.
Step 2: Getting Your Tabs Ready To Use
Step 3: Measure Your Subject
My first row used 35 tabs in the strip wired together
I made 22 rows of 35 tabs for the beginning of my chain mail shirt, but it will depend on who you are making your shirt for as to the number of tabs you will be using in your first row.
