    When it comes to DIY projects, we're all about re-envisioning even the simplest of supplies and turning them into something completely unrecognizable, and more importantly, something you'd actually want to wear. Naturally, we were thrilled when Grace Atwood, the blogger behind Stripes + Sequins, shared with us a brilliant way to turn those only-suitable-for-bed T-shirts into a rad fabric necklace.

    This weekly crafting pro filled us in on her inspiration for the project:
