It is a bit of a stretch.

Reminds me of the musician who was given a rubber trumpet. He joined an elastic band.

That's where you lost me.  Not only is sewing a 'running stitch' something I'd probably do a terrible job at, I don't even know what a "beading thread" is.

This is beading thread: https://www.amazon.com/64-Yard-Nylon-Beading-Thread-Delica/dp/B009LION50/

And a running stitch is the most basic of all sewing stitches: http://www.holiday-crafts-and-creations.com/running-stitch.html



The whole process of stitching it up is exactly the same as making a "yoyo", which is explained in this video. All you have to do is stick it on your headphones as you pull it closed. Since t-shirts are a knitted fabric, they have stretch and will shape around your headphones better than a woven fabric.

Well, that's appropriate as this discussion is becoming a bit of a pain and is a running thread.
