I always have these grandiose ideas to do these crafts I see or think of, yet never get around to doing them. I guess this is a problem for a lot of people because a new website was recently created by one of my favorite bloggers, adoredaustin, called MadethisLovethis.com. Basically, there is a new craft posted every few weeks with a deadline to accomplish it. Once you have finished the craft you can post it on the website and a winner is chosen for every project. Last week the roommates and I decided to try the first project; the t-shirt scarf. We went to a few thrift stores and picked out some old shirts. All this project involves is a t-shirt and scissors…so cheap, so easy.
Here is step-by-step what I did:
Our arrangement of thrifted shirts:
1) Cut right below the arm of the shirt horizontally to the other side of the shirt. Do the same with the hem.
1) From one side of the sem, cut horizontally across the shirt in strips leaving about an inch uncut at the other side seem.
Stretch out the strands...if it is a cotton shirt the strands should curl up.
Run hand in between seem and then gather.
Voila!! You have a scarf!!
Look forward to a post next week with my friends modeling their finished product.
