For those of you on Pinterest, I’m sure you’ve seen dozen of variations of scarves made from t-shirts. I cleaned out my closet this past week & instead of tossing two t-shirts with some holes and minor discoloring, I repurposed like a good pioneer. 🙂
This is so easy, it literally took me ten minutes to make both. No sewing, just a pair of scissors. The first one is a little more elegant. I added a clip on flower so I could change the flower to fit the outfit.
I think these are perfect for spring, though poor Mother Nature is confused at my house. We had snow and a windstorm this morning that took out my power for four hours. Did you know how much you can get done without a computer or television to tempt you?
A lot. Enough for three more blog posts in fact.
Here’s the other version. I like that this one can be any color combination you want. Plus, once spring does hit, this will be cool enough to wear.
Now you’re probably wondering how I did it. I could write it out, but I followed the instructions from this Studio 5 clip. It shows a few other variations I’m going to do. I have to hit Goodwill for more t-shirts. Thinking yellow or orange for summer. Or turquoise. I might have a new habit here, folks.
What’s your favorite repurposing project?
