*Warning - lots of pictures*
I am taking a break from blogging about the house remodel this week - life is getting in the way and I haven't actually completed many projects lately. Instead of the house, I'm going to talk about remodeling some of my t-shirts. I have fallen out of love with some of my clothes and decided to spice up my closet a little for zero dollars. The only thing you'll need to remodel some of your shirts is a pair of scissors and a few cotton t-shirts.
First project is a circle-scarf. (I don't know what the technical name is for this scarf.) And this scarf is actually what began all the t-shirt remodeling. I saw this neat scarf online and thought it was perfect for all seasons:
That was until I saw the $42 price tag. Gulp. I don't like it that much. But, being the thrifty person I am, I had to make one for myself. And, being the nice person I am, I'm showing you how to get your very own circle-scarf. *Make sure your shirt does not have a side seam. Also, the larger the size of the shirt, the longer the loops will be.* For this project, I'm using a large shirt. And I did this project while sitting on the couch watching TV, hence Baby in just about every picture.
Step 1 - Lay the shirt out flat and cut the bottom hem off. Then cut straight across the shirt right under the arm pits. You will have a tube:
Step 2 - Cut about 1 inch strips. These don't have to be perfect, just cut.
Step 3 - Stretch out the strips. Place one strip to the side and don't stretch it. You can see how uneven my cuts are.
Step 4 - Even up the loops and tie them together with the unstretched strip.
Step 5 - Wear it! There are a lot of different ways to wear this scarf. Here are a few of my favorites.
And the best part is that this was free! I just cut up a t-shirt that I never wore. It is also great because it can easily be made while chilling on the couch - it is 100 degrees outside. Now y'all go make some circle scarfs.
