T-Shirt Scarf

I saw this scarf online for $28 and thought, “hey – I could make that for nothing”.  So, I did.  The only thing it cost me was one of my husbands old T-shirts.

Here’s how I did it:

Cut the top off an old t-shirt just below the arm holes.  The older the t-shirt, the better – and use one that doesn’t have any text.

Next, fold it over with the right side facing out.  Cut off the bottom hem and cut 3/4″ strips from the bottom.  If you like the thinner fringe, cut them about 1/2″ wide.

Finally, stretch each one of the fringes until the fabric curls back on itself and voila!  You’ve got yourself a fun 80’s throwback that will be as comfy as  your favorite old t-shirt.  So hit the thrift stores or start your spring closet cleaning and get fringin’.
