This is an extension of my Recycled T-shirt Necklace tutorial. It is much more in-depth than my first one. There are lots of steps to show the process...
Lay the shirt sleeve out on a flat surface.
Using scissors or your rotary cutter, slice off the hem. Discard.
From the hem edge, measure up 3/4" and cut straight across sleeve. Continue up the sleeve until you reach the seam. For a thick bracelet, cut up both ...
Here is a single strip of fabric from the sleeve.
You'll notice that each strip is a loop of fabric.
As you stretch each strip out, it will automatically start to furl into itself, as seen in the picture.
Here is one strip stretched out. It won't curl where the seam is, but don't worry about it.
Now put all your loops together. I am only using two as an example, but you will probably have more. Make sure the seams line up as shown.
Using a scrap piece of the same fabric, loop around the seams to cover them.
Tuck the end of the scrap under the loops. I have mine sticking out a little to show you, but you can cover it completely.
Now you can loop it around once or twice to wear as a bracelet.
