“Pin”spiration Week 6 bonus – T-Shirt scarf
After my t-shirt scarf making fun from last week, I decided I needed to make a K-State one, so I went back to the same site and found another one to make. This one required some sewing, but it was just a straight line, so even beginners can make this one! I got the directions from HERE.
You will need:
First you need to prepare your t-shirts. I’m planning on making a t-shirt quilt of my shirts from college (someday – hopefully this summer) so I cut off the sleeves and the backs of the shirts and saved the fronts for the quilt.
Next you need to cut the shirts into 4″ by 4″ squares. I found a square that size at Wal-Mart which made this project super easy.
Then you take the squares and attach them together so that they make diamond shapes. The tip of one of the diamonds should be in about the center of the next square.
Next it is time to sew. Make sure that the tips lay flat as you are sewing. I made sure the tips on the back were the ones that went in the same direction I was sewing so I could keep a better eye on the ones facing the opposite direction.
Once you have finished sewing you are done! the finished product is super cute and lightweight. I’m excited to wear this soon!!
I want to try one that alternates colors – maybe a Spartan one or a K-State one that uses purple and white.
