It’s one of the easiest and most useful projects I have made.
Cut five strips from the T-shirt. I made them about a half an inch wide. Maybe a bit less. Sew a piece of hem around the strips to secure them. Then tuck the hemmed side under something heavy so you can start braiding.
Basically you are going to braid the first three strips. [#1 goes over #2 and #3 goes over #1] One of the three [#1 the first go around] will now be part of 4 & 5. Braid those three. Continue this pattern.
It seemed confusing to me at first, but you are simply braiding the left three and then the right three so the braids intertwine.
Daniel wants me to make him a few in black to keep his hair out of his face for basketball. See? They are fashionable and useful!
