Sunday morning creativity
Woke up this morning, made myself a tea and ventured onto my favorite blogs. I LOVE the blog world. Each blog I go to , links me to other blogs and on and on. On many blogs, I have admired the"t-shirt" scarves. They looked so cool , easy to do and CHEAP!!! So this morning was the day I would give it a try. I have to say, it was SO easy and I know the more I do the more creative I will become with them. A few weeks ago I was in Napanee and saw a similar scarf in one of the boutiques with a price tag of $30.00...wow.
I had all of the materials around the house so this project was FREE!!! Gotta love that! This is what you need:
-old tshirt(the larger the t-shirt, the longer the scarf will be)
-fabric glue/crazy glue
Lay tshirt out on a flat surface
Cut tshirt from arm pit to arm pit
Cut off the bottom seam of the tshirt
Cut strips of tshirt width wise, leaving a one inch band at the top of the shirt
Once you have cut your strips , Pull each strip tight, this will create the rolling effect with the strips
Put your hand through the top one inch band, creating the scarf
Place scarf around your neck ..."ta da"!!!!
I used the extra fabric from the seam to create this adorable little rosettes and added pearls to the largest rosette, then glued the rosettes onto the scarf!
I think its adorable and cant wait to raid Rene's tshirt stash to make some longer one!
