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!

    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.

    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.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
