Good morning! It’s time for Fix It Up Friday again. I am so glad to have you join me. Thank you to those of you who linked up last week. If you are a blogger and have a creative post to link up, please do so. I always love to see what other people create. The guidelines can be found here. If you link up a post I will feature it on my Facebook page as well.
Today I have another no-sew T-shirt scarf tutorial to share with you. This one is slightly more involved than the last one, but it will still be pretty easy.
Scarves are really popular right now, and an upcycled T-shirt scarf fits right into my accessory budget.
OK. So, I don’t really have an accessory budget, but who can resist a free accessory that doesn’t take long to make?
To make this scarf you will need a pretty big T-shirt, a 9-inch paper plate, scissors, and chalk or a water soluble pen. (Dirty floor not required.) The shirt I used was an XL maternity shirt that never really was big enough once I got past the half-way point in pregnancy. Whatever T-shirt you choose, it needs to be big enough to make about 8 circles.
The next thing I did was cut 8 circles. I traced around the paper plate with chalk and then cut out the circles. I was able to cut 2 circles at a time which is why it only looks like I cut 4 circles.
Next, I cut each circle into a spiral at a width of about 2 inches. (If you would like to see a video of this process check out the DIY Dish.)
Do this step for all 8 circles. Then you need to stretch each spiral out by pulling on it.
Lay all 8 ruffles out and then find the center. Use a leftover piece of T-shirt fabric to make a tie. Tie a knot around the center of the ruffles.
This is how the scarf will look when you are finished.
Here it is in action. I’m not sure if I like it better this way or like in the picture at the beginning of this post. Either way, I’m looking forward to wearing this scarf to brighten up my wardrobe. I may even have to make some for Christmas gifts. I’m sure Julia will want one.
Now it’s your turn to link up your creative posts. I look forward to seeing all of your great ideas. The guidelines for linking up are here.
