Do Creative Things: Handmade T-shirt Scarf

If you're on Pinterest (and if you are not when WHY????) then you've certainly seen examples of these homemade t-shirt scarves (aka t-shirt necklaces). I had t-shirt in this fabulous color that I always stretched out within just a few hours of wearing it and that drove me crazy. So, the other night I grabbed it and some scissors and in about 10 minutes my brand new scarf was done!

Here's a great tutorial!

I really don't think you can go wrong in making it -- my scissors were crappy and the cuts were all completely jagged but once you stretch out the loops they roll up such that you can't even tell (well I do see one edge sticking out on the top right in this photo but whatever!)

Of course I was just dying for someone to compliment me at work the other day. The moment someone did I blurted out, "I made it!!!!"

  1. Ooh, love! I have a shirt that dried unevenly once and never found its shape again. I was going to put in the donating bag but I love its color so much - I think I have to try this!

  2. I love this. Keep up your creative posts!


Comments make my day. Thanks!
