So I’ve wanted to try this… and wanted to find the EASIEST possible way to make a t-shirt scarf, without any sewing. And here is what I found! Follow along as I make my FIRST t-shirt scarf! *Special shout-out to Matt who was either taking pictures, or holding the scarf steady for me… :)*
STEP ONE: Pick a shirt! I have TONS of t-shirts I never wear, so I figured it was a good project to tackle!
STEP TWO: Cut the shirt from armpit-to-armpit.
STEP THREE: Cut the bottom seam off of the shirt.
STEP FOUR: Start cutting 1″ strips in the shirt, leaving about 1″ at the top. I’ll explain why later!
STEP FIVE: When you’ve cut strips all the way across, you will start pulling the strips to make the longer!
STEP SIX: Then you will bunch it all together, using the extra 1″ that you left at the end…
STEP SEVEN: I cut off the sleeve of another shirt, and used it to tie this together. I found a color that I liked with lime green (teal!) so that the overall scarf would be something I’d actually wear…. duh.
STEP EIGHT: You are done! I added a braid in with some of the strands…
And you’ve just made a t-shirt scarf! 3 cheers!! I have lots of shirts left… this literally took me about 10 minutes when I finally figured out what I was doing 🙂 Happy scarf-making!
