After seeing the the crocheted and beaded t-shirt bracelet I made, my six year old wanted to make Valentines bracelets for her whole class. We simplified the process so she could do it without much help: one single strand of “knit noodle*” and one single heart pony bead. She just might start a new, first-grade fad with these little bracelets.
* to make “knit noodles”, cut strips of a t-shirt (parallel to the hem) and stretch them into “tubes.” Experiment with the strip width (1/2″ – 1″) until you get a t-shirt noodle of your liking. Cut the end at a sharp diagonal to make it easier to string on the pony beads.
