I found this idea on Pinterest and
I'm sure if you're a pinner, you've seen it.
Well over Thanksgiving, my mother, sister and I
all made scarves and wore them in our family photos.
They took maybe thirty minutes each to make,
(but we were watching football so we were a little distracted)
involved no sewing and turned out really cute!
1 XL T-shirt (or larger)
fabric glue (optional)
Begin by cutting large circles from the T shirt.
We used a paper plate as a guide.
Don't worry if you have rough edges
or if your circles aren't perfect.
It won't matter later!
From the outside, cut a spiral in the circle,
maintaining about the same width as you go.
Gently pull on the two ends of the spiral to stretch the fabric slightly
(but be careful because I ripped one of mine by stretching it too hard)
It forms a long ruffle!
The end which was the center of the circle will be
more tightly ruffled than the outside.
Depending on your T shirt, you should be able to cut 8-12 circles.
Secure them together by tying a strip of t shirt fabric around the center with a knot
Or secure with fabric glue
Wear with your favorite fall/winter outfit for a cutesy pop of color!
We got our T shirts at JoAnn's for $2.50 each.
You could also upcycle old T shirts that you don't wear anymore.
Even if they have print on them, use several to make a multicolored ruffle scarf.
I did just that to make a gameday scarf for next football season!
This is definitely going to be a gift for my three roommates this year.
And at $2.50 each?
It might be a gift for all my aunts and cousins as well!
Have you attempted T shirt scarves? How did yours turn out?
