No-Sew T-Shirt Scarf

Seriously NO sewing what-sew-ever :) Same scarf 2 different looks. My oldest daughter works at a trendy clothing store and has a similar scarf that cost mucho $$, I found an ugly t-shirt on the clearence rack and decided to give it a try for less $$.
1. Did I mention ugly? I dont know who designed this t-shirt but it was the most mis-shaped shirt that I had ever seen. ENTER cheap experiment. (thanks mis-shaped-ugly-t-shirt-designer)
2. Cut off bottom edge and top
3. Re-fold the middle piece so the seams meet. Cut from the edge up to 1 inch from seams.
4. When your done making all those snips grab the shirt by the seams (one in each hand, kind of like one of those rubber exercise bands) and stretch gentley. This will make the cut strips roll around the edges and give it a finished look.
That was easy wasnt it!
okay, now I have to get back to work and do some serious sewing. Wait till you see what I'm finally finishing. Its been a long time coming.


  1. Love how simple this is. Thanks for sharing.

  2. what a clever idea!!!!!
    I just done some braided belt from t-shirt, if you want to take a look,
