T-shirt To Scarf!

Here are some easy instrucions on how to turn an old t-shirt into a scarf like this one.

Start with finding an old t-shirt

Take a sharp pair of scissors and cut in about an inch of one layer

Continue cutting around the t-shirt in a circle, keeping the cut edge about 1 inch away from your scissors.  Stop, and taper off once you get right below the sleeves

Now you have a large pile of t-shirt strips.  Pull on either end of small sections until you get the desired rolled effect.  Now it’s time to wrap!

Wrap the long strip around your neck until you have a scarf.  You get to be creative in the layerings of how you wrap it.  You can also wrap multiple scarves together for a multicoloured effect.  Another thing you can do to make it yours is add a broach or a hairpin to the side of the scarf.
