This year at Girl Scout camp we used old t-shirts to make these finger woven bracelets. The weaving method is easy to both learn and teach others, in fact many of the girls commented that they'd made them in art class. What I like about them the most is that they require very little supplies and/or time.
When you're out in the wilderness the last thing you want to do is lug along a bunch of crafting supplies or spend half the afternoon waiting for glue to dry. These bracelets can be made in as little as five minutes making them the quintessential Craft Lightning Camp Craft!
To begin you're going to need an old t-shirt and a pair of scissors.
Cut the shirt in strips about 1 1/2" wide, and snip them so that they are one long piece and not a loop.
Give them a little tug so that they curl up on the edges, and then you're ready to get started.
The best way to show how to make these bracelets is with a video.
During camp the girls worked in groups making their bracelets, and once they understood the weaving method many of them had theirs done in just a few minutes. I, being a southpaw, even managed to show the right-handed girls how to make them!
I really love these things because you can easily customize their color and when you're out camping they make great arm sweat bands!
