Simple, Silly, and No-Sew


Morgan came downstairs yesterday morning and announced she’d made herself a scarf. It was a simple design, no knitting or crocheting or sewing of any kind required, which was right up her alley. She said she saw it on the internet somewhere, and as simple and silly as it seemed, she was quite excited about it.

Take a t-shirt–a seamless one is best. Cut off the top and bottom so you just have the middle of the t-shirt, like a wide band of material.
That’s it, you’re done. Now you see the appeal in this project. It’s for those who have short attention spans for crafts!
You just sort of fold it over to make it scarf-like and slip it over your head, twisting then doubling it over to fit.
And there you have it.

I’m not sure it really looks all that warm, but you can put this down on the list as #481,633 of Things to Do with Old T-Shirts!

    I could make a triple fold out of one of my DH’s. Cool Morgan.

    These are all the rage, I have order several for Holiday gifts, what a smart cookie Morgan is, eveyone has a tee that they dont you, and they could be emblished with a loose fringe. If it was cut wide enough, you could cut a “fringe” into the shirt.

  4. Joell says:

    My neighbor tried one of these for her little girl. She cut vertical cuts to make a “fringe”, approx i/2 inch wide and then washed and dried it… the “fringe” sort of curled a bit, it turned out really cute.
