Lay your T-shirt on a flat surface, and mark off your cuts. You’ll want to make 2 pieces that are about 5-6 inches wide and a thinner strip about 2 inches wide. Once you cut up your T-shirt, you’ll end up with 3 tube-like pieces. Simply snip each of them at one of the ends to make them into long straps.
