How to make a Homemade T-Shirt Scarf

This is the Segment that I did for the LiveWell Network Show DEALS.

Gather your t-shirt, scissors and your creativity.

1.  Infinity Scarf ** (See below)

2.  Fringe Scarf

**STOP HERE FOR THE INFINITY SCARF!  THAT EASY!

Take the middle of the t-shirt and stretch it with your hands.  Widen your arms to stretch the shirt wide.  The ends will begin to roll a little.

Cut 1 inch deep fringe on the top and the bottom of the shirt.  Make each cut about 1/3 inch apart.

Then cut the middle of the shirt.

Stretch again then tie a small piece of material to secure the two circles together.

Enjoy your custom made scarf.

3.  Rope Scarf
Cut under arms and cut bottom seam off t-shirt.

Cut lengthwise strips to create rope like pieces.  Tie together with an additional piece of fabric from the t-shirt.

4.  Ruffle Scarf

Cut under arms and at the bottom seam of the t-shirt.
Use a 9 inch plate to outline circles on the front of a t-shirt.

You will have (at least) 8 circles.

Cut a spiral in each circle.

Then run your hand down the length of the fabric to stretch each piece.

Do this several time on each.  This will create a “ruffle” look.

Tie all pieces together with an additional piece of t-shirt fabric.
