Finished Friday: T-Shirt Scrap Earrings {link up your finished projects}

I've been looking for a way to use up all the little t-shirt scraps I have left over from Christmas crafting (scarves, necklaces, & trivets). I came across the idea of t-shirt scrap earrings and completely loved the concept. Like Kristin, I love to accessorize with earrings. These earrings are also a great use for the tiniest of t-shirt pieces and are simple to make.

The earrings I made are about an inch and a quarter in diameter and are so light it's easy to forget you're wearing them. I love that I could easily make a pair to compliment almost any outfit--oh, the possibilities!

I started with a pair for myself last weekend. (Yes, I took this picture myself and no, apparently I had not brushed my hair.)
Then added a pair for my sister-in-law as she headed back to college. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture before I gave them to her.

This last pair is for another sister-in-law, whose birthday is on Sunday. She liked the ones I wore last week to church so I know she'll love a pair of her own.
*If enough people are interested I may be able to put together a simple tutorial, just let me know if you'd like to know how to make your own.

Today's Question: Do you like to accessorize with earrings? I love hoops and dangling earrings in silver and a variety of colors. Describe your earring style. If you're not a fan of earrings, what is your favorite accessory?
I'm trying to hold myself accountable to finish some of the projects on my to do list by posting each Friday about a project I've completed.
Would you like to join in? Link up to your own projects below.
1. Link to your project post, not your blog's home page, so we can find it easily.

2. Let us know what project you are sharing in your title, for example: Spring Wreath 

3. We'd love it if your post links back here so that your readers can come join the fun. Feel free to copy & paste our Finished Friday Button into your post. (Just copy the text in the box below the button, click on the "Edit HTML" tab for your post and paste it there.)

I don't have pierced ears so I don't wear earrings that much. I do have a few pairs of clips but they aren't that comfortable so I only wear then when I'm going out somewhere. I like to wear necklaces. I have an Irish cross necklace that my brother brought back for me when he went on a trip to Ireland that I wear almost every day. I have many more necklaces that go with different outfits but I wear my cross necklace more often.

I would love to see a tutorial for the t-shirt earrings. They would make nice tuck-ins for birthday gifts.

If I forget to put on my earrings to go out, it's like the world is coming to an end! LOL

Earring is definitely my favorite accessory, though simple necklaces are my second favorite. I'd love to see a tutorial!

Those are such cute and colorful earrings! I would love to see a tutorial!

I have pierced ears, but rarely wear earrings, because I feel like all the ones I own are more for a night out, rather than for day-to-day wear.
