All you need is a t-shirt and scissors.
Lay a t-shirt flat and cut across from arm pit to arm pit. (use a t-shirt that does not have side seams).
You now have a t-shirt tube. Cut the hem off the bottom. Then cut in 1 inch strips. Don't worry about getting them straight, It will all come out at the end. You will have approximately 20 to 25 strands.
Pull each strip to stretch as far as it will go. combine them all together with a cut piece of fabric from the discarded piece of shirt. Tie tight and cut.
