I saw these cool scarves made out of shredded old t-shirts though, and jumped up to go make one.

Half way through I decided it didn't really suit me - too much fabric (little short neck), so I changed tack to make it into a fabric necklace, by using less strands and throwing on a few glass beads that I had around. I think I like it now.

|stretch the loops as far as they will go|
You can see on the first image that they have used one strand of fabric to wrap over the seams to make a neat finish. To add the beads I just cut off one seam on each strand, and added a bead on either side. I then put a stitch through them all to hold them, and wrapped with an unstretched strand, adding a stitch or two to secure the final knot.
Just Google t-shirt scarves and you'll see there are loads of different ways to make them, with just a pair of scissors, and maybe needle and thread.
