T-Shirt Scarves

So I recently saw this adorable idea for re-purposing old t-shirts on Pinerest and decided I had to try it. The idea is to cut up old shirts you don’t wear anymore and make them into adorable new scarves.

They are extremely easy! All you do is cut the seam off the bottom of your old shirt and then continue to cut the shirt into thin strips (about 1/4 inch each) until you get to the sleeves. The larger the shirt you use, the more you’ll be able to do with your scarf. I actually used a jersey-cotton pillow case that didn’t have a match for the scarf below because it only had one seam and was the perfect size! Make sure to cut all the way around the shirt (or pillow case) so the strips stay in loops. At the end you can attach them together however you’d like. I cut one of the loops and wrapped it around the scarf to cover up the seams and keep all the loops together.

You can find a better tutorial on how to do this and other cute t-shirt projects here. I have to say their scarves turned out a little better than mine, but for my first try I think it turned out pretty well. Click on the images to see a larger view.
