DIY: Recycled T's: Scarf

Scarf Instructions:
  1. Take an old T-shirt and lay flat.  ( size XL, seamless jersey shirts works best)
  2. Using scissors remove shirt hem
  3. Remove top half of T-shirt, cutting around arm area
  4. Cut 1/2 -1 inch strips.  I just cut freehand, and don't worry about frayed ends.
  5. Take strips and stretch.  ( ends of strips will roll and hide frayed ends!)
  6. Take an extra strip of material and tie one end around all the strips and wrap until you reach the end of material
  7. Tie a knot

Voila you have a Scarf!

Get creative with your fabric, Tye dye it, bleach it, use fabric paint, use different materials and designs, incorporate pearls, jewelry, brooches, etc.
