Tutorial – How to make a scarf from t-shirts

Here is my very first repurposed project tutorial to make a rag scarf.

It took me about an hour and a half from start to finish….no sewing machine required.

MATERIALS REQUIRED:

3 t-shirts of any color combination.  ( they can have bleach marks or stains, it doesn’t really matter)

1 needle and thread

Scissors – they should be fabric scissors or else you may have blisters before you are done.

Step 1 – find three lengths of t-shirt fabric.  They can be alternating colors or the same color.  It’s fun to use different textures and patterns.  They can be the same width or slightly different as shown in the drawing.  Cut pieces as long or as short and as wide as you’d like – you have lots of flexibility!  For an extra long scarf you could sew two pieces together.

Step 2 – Either hand sew or machine sew a straight line down the center of ( and through) all three fabrics.

Ste- 3 – using FABRIC scissors, cut on each side of the sewing line, just up to the thread.

That’s it!  You can wear it tonight!

    Good job, I saw an idea something like that in a magazine just recently. Could use up lots of ends like that.

    Great project. I really like the illustration for the step details.

    I can’t wait to see more.
