Fourth Day of the Sixth Week of the School Summer Holidays - Beaded T-Shirt Bracelet

As promised here is the second canvas Lara created on Wednesday.

Yesterday Lara made Beaded T-Shirt Bracelets. The idea came from the This Mama Makes Stuff blog.

She used an old white t-shirt, some pony beads and a crochet hook.

I cut 1" strips of fabric parallel to the bottom of the shirt.

Lara then threaded 14 pony beads onto the fabric strip.

She then crocheted a series of chain stitches incorporating a bead into each chain. Instructions for this can be found here. Lara had never crocheted before but found this quite easy to do.

When she had crocheted all the beads she finished off, tied the ends together around her wrist and snipped off the loose ends. The end result a funky bracelet.

She enjoyed making it so much that she went on to make LOTS more. Here are three of the finished bracelets.
