I attempted a new way to re-use old t-shirts: another infinity scarf! This one is more of a cowl neck, which would probably translate better in the winter time. Still, the style can work for those breezy beach nights...like maybe at a Fourth of July celebration? Eh? EH? ;)
For this scarf, I chose old red, white, blue and grey shirts. The Old Navy Flag tees came in handy. The plan is to create a patchwork fabric.
Step One: Cut up the old tees into squares/rectangles.
Step Two: Layout the shapes into the way you would like them to be attached.
Step Three: Stitch the shapes together. I advise using a sewing machine so that the scarf can be washed in a washing machine and not fall apart.
Step Four: You have created your fabric! Fold your fabric in half, wrong side facing out.
Step Five: Stitch the long edges together, which creates a "tube". Once done, turn out the fabric, right side out.
Step Six: The tricky part is sewing the ends together. Make sure to face the right side of the fabric to right side of the other end. Stitch the circle as much as your sewing machine allows.
Step Seven: There will be a small section left that you will need to hand-stitch closed. Use any stitch you'd like!
DUNZO! Happy 4th!
