Tutorial Tuesday: T-Shirt Scarf



Lately I have been trying really hard to bump up my fashion a little bit.  I'm not very stylish and slowly I'm going to add an accessory here and there.  I saw this cute scarf and it looked easy and I had everything I needed for it right then!

This is how I made it:
1) This was a shirt fail... so I used this white t-shirt.
Photobucket
2) I cut the bottom off and then cut strips into 3/4" strips.  The best part of it being a shirt is that they are already in a loop :)Photobucket
3) Next I pulled the loop to make the sides curl.

4) I gathered all of the strips together.

5) It was a little long for me, so I folded it in half.
Photobucket
6) I then tied the top with a little strip of the shirt.

I wanted to add a little bit of color to the scarf, but I wanted to be able to be interchangeable flowers.  
7) I added a little strip of white felt onto the scarf.  I glued it on.

And that's it for the scarf, super easy!!!

Now for the flowers.  
8) I cut up another shirt into several different circles.  
Photobucket
9) I then glued the circles onto a piece of felt.  
Photobucket
10) I glued some Velcro onto the back of the flower.  Make sure to used the stiff side of the Velcro.
Photobucket
Then I stuck it right onto the felt!!!  It does a great job staying on too!!

Here's another flower I made with circles.  I added some tulle to this one.Photobucket Photobucket

And of course I need a brown one :)Photobucket Photobucket

  11. I think you read my mind with your first lines. I wear way too many t-shirts, and I rarely am stylish. But I'm loving scarves these days. I'll definitely be making one of these! Thanks for the tutorial!

    Maybe you can have a tutorial for Fashionable Fridays on making something cute instead of just posting what you wore??
