Supplies: tshirt, long sleeve
Throw back post to one of my favorites. Simply use a tshirt or jersey and add this trim to a sweatshirt or hoody for a fun look.
I created this cool technique and love the way it looks along seams and edges.
Cut 2 strips from a tshirt, measuring about 8inch by as long as a tshirt (front and back sides).
Fold over about 3 inches.
Cut even strips about the width of a pinky up to about 1 inch from the edge.
Pull strips to create strings.
When weaving the top strand goes over the bottom and you pull the bottom strand through and continue. Here is a post of me showing how to do this including a video of the process if you need more instruction.
Tip: secure the bottom with a bobby hair pin until ready to sew.
Weave again. It will get tight but pull the suckers through...it will end up looking like a braided weave.
Secure the end by sewing the left over strings together.
Cut even strips to the edge of the weave.
Pull into strings and loop tie sets of 2 together.
