After cleaning out my kids’ closets, I came across their summer tees. I almost got rid of them but then decided to snip them into colorful infinity scarves! I’ve seen this idea before, but I gave it my own twist by cutting nothes to add fringe. The jersey fabric is cozy, and has a lot of body once it is cut and curled. I love how these came out! I plan to give them to my nieces, cousins and friends. Aside from being bulky and oh-so-warm, they are super cute!
What you’ll need
How to make it
- Fold your shirt in half, lengthwise. Use chalk to mark off lines every 5-6 inches. Cut along the lines. Your final cut will be along the bottom of the arms all the way across. Do not cut the side seams!
- Cut the pieces down the middle, lengthwise. And then again so you have several sections.
- Take one pice and fold it in half lengthwise. Snip along thelong side to make the fringe. Make sure not to cut the sides!
- This is how each piece should look after the fringe has been cut. Connected on each end, like a loop, but fringed along the bottom and top.
- Pick up one of the pieces and holding an end in each hand, stretch it. This will make the the jersey fabric curl and ruffle.
- As you can see, I worked on two scarves at the same time. Here are both of my scarves, ready to be connected!
- Set down each piece on top of each other to make a stack.
- Cut an extra stand of the tee and use it to tie the pieces together at the top.
- I like how theyellow scarf came out nice and bright, but my favorite is the purple. It was made from a tie-dye shirt and it has three different colors, which gives it a lot of dimension.
