Round three of t-shirt remodeling - braided scarf. Another easy, all season scarf tutorial. The instructions are similar to the circle-scarf, except the circles in this scarf are cut and then braided. And, I finally graduated to a cutting mat and rotary cutter. Go me!
Step 1 - Lay the shirt out flat and cut the bottom hem off. Then cut straight across the shirt right under the arm pits.
Step 2 - Cut the shirt into 1 inch strips
Step 3 - Stretch the strips. Leave one strip to the side and don't stretch it.
Step 4 - Then cut the strips so the circles are broken.
Step 5 - Leave about 6 inches of fringe and then begin braiding. I used a clear pony-tail holder to secure all the strips together. And then I put the strips under the edge of a table to hold in place while I braided.
Step 6 - Braid the strips. Leave about 6 inches of fringe at the end.
Step 7 - Secure the two ends together with the extra strip from step 3.
Step 8 - Wear it! - No pics. I had been working outside with no makeup and I'm not about to take a pic to put on the internet looking like that! But maybe I'll take a few pics tonight and update.
And - I almost lost a finger to the rotary cutter. That thing is sharp! My finger was nothing to it. So....maybe I haven't graduated yet.
