“Pin”spiration Week #5 BONUS – T-Shirt Scarf
I got a whim last night to make another project this week…and it was quick, fun and easy. I also wanted to make it because it is spirit week at EHS…and it also added to my obsession with scarves…
This project literally takes less than 45 minutes from start to finish and is a great way to use up some old t-shirts (I have PLENTY of those at my house).
All you will need for this project are:
First, you need to cut the hem off of each t-shirt and save it for later. Then, cut 8 strips (about 3/4″ wide) – side note: I will probably cut them a little thinner next time I make one. Do this with every shirt so you have 32 strips total.
After you cut the strips in each color, take each loop and stretch it a few times. Then, wrap the strips around your hand. The tighter you wrap, the smaller your loops and the more loops it will take to make your scarf. If you wrap the loops around something larger, you will probably not need all 32 loops.
You will end up with 32 loops in all four colors.
Next, cut the hems into about 5″ strips and use them to connect each loop together. I decided to do mine in a pattern.
Continue attaching more loops until your scarf is the length you want.
The website with the pattern has tons of other t-shirt scarf patterns, so I’m sure I’ll be trying some other ones!
