Scarf Tutorial From Old T Shirt

Hey guys!

I found this cool scarf tutorial in Glamour magazine a while back and have been meaning to try it and last night... I finally did! They got it from the book, P.S. I Made This... by Erica Nomesek.  I bet the whole book is good... may have to check that out! Anyways, the whole process takes about 15 minutes.  Super Easy.

First you find a t-shirt that you don't wear anymore.  I used a long sleeve one that had gotten a whole in it. Next, you just cut it straight across from arm hole to arm hole and throw away the top half.  I kept mine for scrap fabric though.. you never know :)

Now, you take the unhemmed side and begin cutting strips about every half inch to create fringe. Cut strips all the way around.  I cut about half way up.. but really you can make them as long or short as you like.

That's it!! Voila!!  A hip new scarf out of an old ratty t shirt. This is perfect for fall because it's not a warm scarf.. just a cutsie one :)

Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend everybody !
